rock in the hull


Anna Sykora



that rock is now famous
stuck in the hull

the split hull
of the sunken cruise ship

lying off the isle of Giglio
due they say to the captain's error

or if you believe in malevolence
that rock had been waiting

for millions of years
to get its photo
into the internet
