A poem excerpt from the new collection Adhbhar Ar Sòlais / Cause of Our Joy by Marion F. NicIlleMhoire, to be published by Bradan Press in November 2018:⠀

MADONNA AND CHILD OF THE ROCKET RANGE

Your one defence
A cold shoulder turned on perpetual lights
Tracking down our innocence
In the gentle falling of day
From Rueval Hill
To the wide sea.
