A Heavy Business

You expected irony
I offer iron

sixty thousand tons
of hammered ore
floating proud on ten thousand more

a heavy business
built upon the sea

a hundred hardened men who pray
to faithful tension
and factory

a ship, a home, a wake in bright white foam

could but our
deadweight
drift so purposefully
Current Music:
Zofia Kilanowicz; Antoni Wit: Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra - Górecki: Symphony #3 - Lent
