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
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?
