Poem: Fishing on Crag’s Leap

Fishing on Crag's Leap

Scrambling over bony rocks
Maybe I am lost, folding
Between the billowing black of the sea
And damp footholds to my
Favourite fishing spot 

The gulls screech like thirsty
New-borns with crisp skin
Gulping at warm air.
Patches of weeds, a tender
Blood-green almost cause me to

Slip - how fast would I fall?
My fat body rolling
Down the crag face
All the time thinking
It would look like suicide
