Hi friends,

I found one poetry written Hart Crane as follows:

Bind us in time, O Seasons clear, and awe.
O minstrel galleons of Carib fire,
Bequeath us to no earthly shore until
Is answered in the vortex of our grave
The seal’s wide spindrift gaze toward paradise.

Could you please explain it in simple words, especially the sentence in bold?

Thank you

Hi friends,

It is an American series.

A report is sitting with a politician. She was transferred to do campaign trail, but, unfortunate, coincidentally involved with the delivery of munitions.
The politician knows this information, then he says with her as follows:-


The reporter with a moral compass capable of pointing off the campaign trail and delivering a lot of munitions to South America?

Could you please help to explain the word in bold?


Remarks:
I looked up its meaning and found this:-
Point off: (Mathematics) (tr, adverb) to mark off from the right-hand side (a number of decimal places) in a whole number to create a mixed decimal: point off three decimal places in 12345 and you get 12.345.

I think it not match with the context. Can I replace it with 'point out' in this context?

Thank you
QP

To all,

There are a lot of boxes of military weapons in a container, not only the mines.
The gunrunner will get 1 million dollars after selling all.
However, the context only says about the number for the mines, that is two per on the 69s.
That's all the context I have.

Hi friends,

A gunrunner gets the quotation from someone who told him that 'two per on the 69s.'.

I wonder it means three dollar per one Valmara in one box or what?

Remarks: 69 is Valmara mines. It is Valmara 69. It contains in many big boxes.

Thank you

To Dragonspeaker, Sarrriesfan:

I don't know whether it is really the sissy bar.
In the scene, the father who is old and has a little bit problem of his memory saw a group of gay. It is possible that he thinks himself that it is the sissy bar.
