Silent Sea

Lyrics by Rachael Boast, Music by Sally Lamb McCune

Another vessel sheds the chrome of its silver mile until a mile meanders into three, triples again over the reef. Nothing can breathe under oil, nor register that dark membrane’s slick over sight. We were the first cracking the hull of the earth open, our foolish husbandry a metallurgy that’s brimmed with false gold too often we can talk, and talk, and talk but a ship in space, manned by non-thinking from non-feeling, says absolutely nothing at all.
