Hawk Season Notebook #124

Benbradagh Mountain, Dungiven, County Derry, Ireland, 1972

Hawk Season Notebook #124

Gaunt, dead or on parole from a home for the mad or for dumb beasts, in a dream you are hiking  up a gentle Irish mountain... a good wide path... a rock to two to kick aside... purple heather. You are being helped along by a florid-face, blubber-neck hospital orderly in starched white, Ah, sir, it's a life of tramp, tramp, tramp-along. It's that life, sir, or the life of being trampled, aye.
