Lionsmouth

Written about a job interview in Northern Ireland. Considered essentially impenetrable by the poetry group. Turns out it couldn’t be unravelled and reravelled. Exists as is. 

(an attempt to redo it reads thus:

"The port by the wine-sea,

Beyond the islands of men,

We pass

To a red liveried land,

Escaping.

Into a more dangerous place,

With fewer fortresses and less security than we’ve ever known,

Passing fragile paper cranes downriver,

Floating down through

Seaside Lionsmouth.

But the pit that is fled,

The gauntlet that is run

Precedes arrival in the mouth of the lion,

It was from heartlands, homelands,

That hold tight, immobilise,

Paralyse –

To reach the sea, one must run and run and run.

The far port, a distant hope:

To put that flight behind us, fiction,

The lion’s mouth truer, we are within;

Too weak, too bound to go.”

 
I do not believe the small additions add anything.
