Sport 43: 2015

aye ready ready

inside the diorama
Scott exchanges the din
of the world for man-hauling

though his plaster-of-Paris
voluntary muscles
are uncooperative

though his tiny plasticine boots
sleep in thick white paint
and his mind is tethered

to pipe-cleaners he seems
to go forward on feet
that never yield

not even when his ponies
perish and his dogs
disappear like tricks

not even when his sledge
as heavy as ever
decides to stand very still
