Eleanor Hooker D I S PAT C H E S Back then, I used words as coded transcripts of my days: private riddles, silence bound in bantam boxes, sounds paged in poems. And now my words are weighed by water, a discourse on the seas--phrased lines at the bitter end of cables to the quays, quotes verbatim et literatim. A numbered few sealed in suits and yellow boots crew lifeboats to the scene, to snare that rabid creature fear, cast it down, well aware it'll snare them too given half a chance. I've been told hope floats, and now I'm certain dread does too, holding fast to fear. But it's people that concern us, and when we leave them safely on the shore we must return a transcript of their story, engage the sea's fickle nature to describe it and disarm it, persuade others of the folly at its core, then not in ways preachers use, but as illustrator, as teacher. Yet, some scenes are seen for which we have no words, dislimn or unknown, silence bound in bantam boxes, sounds paged in poems. new hibernia review / iris éireannach nua, 20:4 (geimhreadh / winter, 2016), 4450 SKIPPING
