P-Q: Pirrie Park to Queens University, Belfast



Pirrie Park to Queen’s University:
passed Protestant, passed Catholic,
passed student ghetto diversity –
The Holylands;

passed parks and renovations,
old Bakery – contemporary apartments;

passed the Lagan,
Heaney’s still waters running deep;

passed the leafy Lyric stage,
passed museum queue, doubled back –
Rembrandt’s last self portrait..?
A Belfast first for views
no longer caught up in the past,
sod it, Q can wait…
