From: Vol.06 N.01 – The Everywhere of Things

Abandoned Agricultural Machinery, No.23

by Bruach Mhor

Hay rakes,

no longer horse-hitched,

look like

lost, portable bike racks.

My favourite,

claimed by the bracken clan,

rusts beside

the Loch Na Keal coast road,


the once rowed water

to Inch Kenneth:

permanently turned to follow

off-shore white horses.

History, like a tourist,

motors by.
