Title Piece from newest release


When you worship swans no longer

Will you find your way to me?

Smoke rising in a breathless voice

Winding between shade and sun

 A dream begun on dew drops

  Daring midday like a ghost

Vowing never to fly

From your embrace

“PD Lyons work stands at the threshold so loved in Ireland. That almost magical, almost mythical, almost otherworldly parallel that the Irish dip in and out of. Where we chose to believe in luck and superstition and destiny and embrace these as tangible factors in our daily lives. – from the forward by Una O’Neill D’Arcy, Journalist/Freelance Writer

Thank you in advance for supporting this project!

Oberon’s Law/ Fate Uses Hard Those Whose Stories Must Mean Something

Submission Guidelines

General Guidelines:

Writers in all their flavors are invited to submit 3 of their best works for consideration. What is the best, you ask? We like writing of all flavors that tastes like the Fantastic. We care significantly more about the style of the story than how it can be pigeon holed.  However, there should be elements of Speculative Fiction in each work.

Fiction short, shorter, shortest (5,000 to 50 words generally speaking). Poetry of any length (though Beowulf-long is a little bit much). We will consider also longer works for serial publication (send Kester an e-mail first, though)

When in doubt-send it over!

Send to: Submissions@OberonsLaw.com

two american poems/ pd lyons poetry project

Women Buying Guns In America

Smash the fuckin’ TV walk barefoot in the snow

Pierce ourselves with steel

Chew tequila worms ‘til the hand of god wipes our mouths

Piss wherever, say whatever fuck whoever

Fearless with the night of any street of any place

And no Thelma and Louise

We don’t die

Don’t even get caught

We hide

Disguised as geriatric cunts

Happy enough to sleep now

Two ends of the same rope coiling

Richly deserved pools of never never land

Surrender only to each other

 Our Peter Pan tongues.






American Outlaw

Always somebody just like you

Somewhere else

In photos

They even look the same

In their past your lovers

Have met and fucked them

In the dark they dreamt

Of things you used to pray for

after a day of rain

after a day of rain

white flowers

before a young girl

small songs upon the mist

Should The Question Beg For Answer

Should The Question Beg For Answer

will the water be beautiful?

will I thank every drop of the sea?

the sky, will  it  be so blue,

I’ll find ships sailing in the clouds?

and emearald and hawthorn

would i lay down there again?

rise to wander mists by fairy lakes

secret women drift in sleek wolfhound shapes

lead by old and limping men

between hedgerow  and dirt lanes?

speak with mallard fox and silent swan?

their stories told of long ago

when black cats and tabby cats,

small black terriers through stone walls and brier

sure and steady tacked

all possibility of horses
