It’s just easier to Irish Goodbye.
no delays in getting on the road…
it simplifies everything, really.
It’s surgical, smart.
No excuses required to loved ones. No need to worry about loved ones. No loved ones.
except maybe the next day
when you’re pestered for where you’d gone off to
asked about what happened last night
and why you disappeared
some will-o-the wisp.
There’s an elegance
to just leaving without a word,
a secret agent magic
that leaves you ready and able
for your next assignment:
I really cannot recommend
the Irish Goodbye enough.
Not that I necessarily
have anyone left
to offer it to.
