Correction: Alan Finlay's poem 'return' in Green Dragon 6

Due to a production error, the two final lines of Alan Finlay's poem 'return' in Green Dragon 6 were deleted. The correction version of Finlay's poem reads as follows:

water smashing open the rocks.


Dye Hard Press apologies for the error.
