Above Gullfoss Waterfall
Put these together.
A flimsy yellow/red barrier
half-blocking the one road into the interior.
This is lowered, the guide tells us, for most of the year.
Beside it, like a stark-shadowed spear
a triangled exclamation mark stands on a pole.
What it adds to: almost the whole
country closed off. Turn left, squint over there:
a black ridge smoothed and blanked: claws of a glacier.
