Oor Mannie

An hotel room in Golspie can be
the loneliest of lonely dens.
The cracked mirror half-heartedly
reflects olden histories and mythologies
that remain perched high upon a ben
way above the soft-snoring sea.
The Golspies call him, “oor Mannie.”
He strides atop Beinn a’ Bhragaidh
on the North Sea coast.
Does the Gaelic mean with a bang?
Or does the Gaelic point to the boast?
