Liverpool’s Dream

“Dreams don’t sleep.

Like a tree on the moon
the Giant, lying on a raft
has stranded on the beach of New Brighton.

Who knows on what ship he has taken off his diving suit,
what storm he has suffered from
and what currents have pushed him towards Liverpool.

The fact remains that the Little Girl Giant has appointed her
brother, the Little Boy Giant, to go see him.

He has settled in St George’s Hall.

Besides the city has organised a fancy dress ball in his honour.

Even if thunder wanted to crush the city,
sewn clouds are protecting the sky.

The heart of the inhabitants radiates so strongly
that we can hear the beats echoing
over to Dublin.

Careful, the dreams of the Giants alight in Liverpool!”
