On Eriskay
Niall Campbell
 
 
She met me at the fence. A kelpie 
 who'd stayed too long in this horse form, 
 she mouthed the sugar on my palm, 
 and when I slapped her barrel flank 
 the goose moor1 stiffened2 with a sea 
 perfume. Gulls3 gathered on the stoop. 
 
What a way to be seen out: confused 
 among the pearlwort and the fallow. 
 Her beach songs, like the recalled taste 
 of bucket milk, inched from her tongue. 
 Dusk grew behind the house. I watched 
 her drink the moon from a moon-filled trough.
