DAY ONE HUNDRED AND NINE – Seth Crook

Styx

There isn’t a ferry anymore.
Charon got laid off.
Rowing is inefficient.
No motor version.
No quick launch.
They’re building a bridge,
strictly a toll bridge.
The whole thing
got privatised, A to B.
Dodgy investors with a low bid.
Protesters say
the service will go to hell.

 

 

Seth Crook taught philosophy at various universities before moving to the Hebrides. His poems appear in such places as Gutter, New Writing Scotland, Glasgow Review of Books, Southlight, The Rialto, Magma and Envoi. One was selected as one of the Best Scottish Poems of 2014.
