Poetry Map of Scotland, poem no. 260: Dundee

Site of the New V&A Building, Dundee, in Fog


mud and rough gravel debris -
cranes that climb high, high
into the fog overhead
and disappear -
it's a struggle to see
you here
(the pictures always set you
in summer, in sunshine -
your silver slats splintering
from your ship-shaped sides
are always
almost too bright to see
almost too bright to believe)
Joan Lennon
