Belfast (3 From Maine) - Poem by Bryan Riley

In and
out of the
artists' shops
ships at
rest in
the sleepy
northern bay

Rhythm of footsteps
muted on the
summer streets

Sudden cool
in the
bookshop- the
musty scent of
a rare find-

cooling our heels
at the water's edge,
we count our
trinkets and
treasures before
moving on
