Four Poems Andrew McNeillie

Wish List
The iceberg that makes it round the world.
The complete works of Anon.
A cape and stars above the sea.
The camel through a needle's eye.
The Life of William Shakespeare by Himself.
The first of day. Her louch look.
The sweetest fuck.
The nesting bird.
The omerta of old age.
The light at the heart of the pyramid.
The song you have by heart.
The harbour light at dawn.
The sound within the poem.
The curlew on the moor.
The wild-goose skein.
The raven rolling in a windy sky.
