Gerry Loose - Poems from 'fault line' (3)


before the torrents of rain
Bàgh mu Dheas
Bàgh mu Thuath
before the landslides
Rudha nan Sgarbh
Sgeir bhuidhe
leaving aside
the multitudes of frogs
the Hen-house
the Deer Shed
Maggie Baan’s Hole
Mecky’s Point
now silenced
a people of the sea
the sea


the mast of the riverside
named & folded back
& back into the hill
into missiles lodgings
