(an experiment in imitation of “Ye white Antarctic birds” by Lisa Jarnot)

O great maritime bears of Sauchiehall,
you parade of great maritime bears, you paviors
with great maritime bears and drums and great
maritime bears you paviors, oh and you the
paviors and bears I follow behind the parade of
paviors and bears and intolerance, you the bears
maritime of the confrontations and the metal
uprights, you the uprights of intolerance, the intolerance
for the uprights, you the despiser of the metal
and me and bears and others too and
drums, and you the drums, and you the forthright
intolerant bears and me, and you and the
confrontations yet maritime, and lager and
thronging great maritime bears and you the
flutes and accordions and uprights the metal
uprights maritime, and you the uprights and
drums, and him the one I hate, and those who
do not hate me, and all maritime intolerance, and all
the bears and drums and also on the paviors
maritime of this intolerance.
