Poem about the use of the word “like” in by Irish people ….. like

I once counted my girlfriend use the word “like” 93 times in the space of 15 minutes. She wasn’t happy that I counted but I couldn’t help notice it. I became fixated on it!  I remember that at at the time, for some reason the word just kept coming out, like a nervous tick, even just to fill the gaps, like.

Anyway, this poet Joseph O’Connor is great. He has lots of great and accessible poems. Check him out. This is his website: http://www.josephoconnorauthor.com/about-long.html
