Newfoundland- Biographical Note #2:

 

 

On Eli Tucker's wharf in Quidi Vidi-
the text on this drawing reads as follows:

 

 

 

 

fresh-watered from wash
salt-wet from the sea


a coil on the wharf
a coil in me

one coil to conjur birth
one coil to thwart it

the first one to celebrate
the second- to abort it

 

first sign- first site
coiled line- in-sight
