Passing Place of the Seat

 

passing place of the seat
fold axial planes dip steeply

a coat of rattling shells
sheep graze, rough open hill land

one leg, one arm, one eye
recumbent nappe folds north west

bismuth, mercury, quartz
food denied the traveller

densely planted conifers
wealth and beauty denied the sidhe [pron ‘shee’]

hog’s back ridge and knobbly ground
synsedimentary fault-bound basin

stabs the thatch with willow stick
arsenic, antimony, copper, lead

zinc, barium, gold, silver
downward forms synformal anticline

the metamorphic rocks
the turbidite assemblage

assumes the shape of horse
water bird, water devil

the shallow water shelf
shallow marine deposits

passing place of the seat
fold axial planes dip steeply
