63/100 The jaw of sea at hull gnawing all night




(No, but spars and planks enough to keep
An island in roofbeams, tables, coffins doors
A century long – a quarry of wood
The jaw of sea at hull gnawing all night.)

[from’ The wreck of the Archangel’, George Mackay Brown, The wreck of the Archangel]
