Different from your
winter quarters in Africa
you come, because I’ve seen you,
and cruise like an accipiter in
heat along the near side of
Divis Mountain before it becomes
one more housing estate in Belfast
just off the Ballygomartin Road.

James Mc Elroy grew up in Belfast and now teaches at The University Of California.
