Meet  Marina Star,

and despite the people above and below, this is not a story but rather a scene whose principal character

might be this small container ship that appears empty and headed

for sea

through the Upper New York Bay

and past various vessels

anchored in the sixth boro, either dormant or taking on cargo or

discharging. Scene’s over.

The real story of Marina Star may take place elsewhere, and I just don’t know it although I wonder why Marina leaves us apparently empty. I wish she’d taken me into her confidence and told me what the story was. Marina, why the silence?
