Roddy Williams – The Atheist Poet

abandoned ship (2016)

left out of her depth
her clement element to rust
she cries for help
with words they no
longer manufacture

two nights running
this far whining
metal scriking

like a gunship in perilous
impossible waters
I can not get the parts
to answer her
