Saying Goodbye By Edward Lee The two of us talked that night. All night. Our conversation never drying up, even though you were nought but ashes lost in the darkness of an urn. We talked of the past. We talked of the future. We spoke of friends and old lovers. We talked until the sun highlighted the dirt on the window, even though you were nought but ashes lost in the darkness of an urn. I scattered your remains across Inismhor, as you requested, and have not had a conversation as good since. Edward Lee’s poetry, short stories, non-fiction and photography have been published in magazines in Ireland, England and America, including The Stinging Fly, Skylight 47, Acumen and Smiths Knoll.  His debut poetry collection “Playing Poohsticks On Ha’Penny Bridge” was published in 2010. He is currently working towards a second collection.
