Dear Rita



I went back today to the spot where you left me, or did I leave you? I dont really no where it was. Somewhere along the way Maybe it was weeks ago we were doomed from the start but too stupid to realise it.



I tried so hard to find you, I lied to myself, I told myself id find you, Ive been looking all over, behind every tree and under every sofa weve passed. But ive finally had to face the truth that you are gone forever, peace be with you, and may you enjoy many more dusk time spins and all night sessions. You always used to love to play



Thank you for all the fun times weve had those times when youd do your own thing and that was perfect.

Im sorry if there were times when you were abused or I didnt take good care of you and didnt protect you. I may have acted like I dont care but I hope you know that I always will I know you wanted it all along, some kind of freedom



You should have seen the grief youve caused me Ive been worried sick and Im sorry I let you get away, I wanted it to end with one last twirl on a cliff somewhere flung over the edge, a brutal suicide would have been appropriate.

Karen is inconsolable, but you knew that would be the case, shes relics now, just a shell of her own self, but I know you dont care.



I hope that wherever you are now you are safe. The thought of you stuck in a skip with broken TVs and old doors brings me close to tears. I hope you have found a good home in the bottom of a suitcase somewhere, I know you always wanted one.



Wherever you are now, I hope you read this letter, these confused and conflicting feelings you have left me with, which I know will eventually fade away. I hope you read this letter just so you know- youre memory will live on, you were beautiful.

Actually, I hope you don't mind Oli... and I hope it isn't disrespectful to Rita's memory... but I would just like to add my own thoughts about my own lost children.

I didn't name them... not because I didn't love them, but because they were always there...

They were my first poi - and my only poi for those first two years.
They were fire poi, and I was faithful to them.

I made special little purple sleeping bags for them, so they didn't get clogged with sand or cover me in soot when I was practicing.

But I came home to Ireland and was distracted by talk of fancy sock poi, and cathedrals.

My head was turned. I'm sorry.

I abandoned you one night after a gig, in a car park.
I wish you had a better resting place.

But please know that every time I drive by that car park, I think of you both.
Lying there, no doubt crushed by someone's tyres.

You were my babies... you taught me so much, and while we caused each other pain, thank you for staying so long.

Le sigh
