1475: Doggerland

When swamped Noah’s Wood
has re-seeded above sea rises –
when it has been reinstated –
that connection

of Britain [no more a stoic island
able to gorge on separation
& cry out a huge difference]
would be fixed

Such an implausible conceit –
with our warming & tipping concerns
seeing fast incursions of salt water –
no reunification is possible

Slumped & washed by a North Sea rush –
yet to return are men & women –
hot in our blood/ They sleep in silt/
We were never an island race
