St. Kilda

St. Kilda,
if you were a transcription error
then let us have more transcription errors.

St. Kilda,
your shining shield,
your dyslexic mess,
your viking skildar,
your wooden lady boat,
your palatial collarbone coast,
your saintly queers in grey coats
have left their errant punctuation in: my; hyphenated (throat).

St. Kilda,
I could drop my typewriting anchor
on your saintly full stop heart
and raise a holy family
of  punctuation marks.
