September 19, 2018: The Inner Harbour

This harbour was made by art and force . . .
And holds the sea behind its barrier
less than five miles from my house.
 . . .
They came and cut a shape out of ocean
and left stone to close around their labour.

––Eavan Boland The Harbour

Container Docks at East Vancouver, on Burrard Inlet inside Lions Gate
