Dennis Barone: Abandoned

Spring '11 TOC

In the Strait of Otranto,
Migrants without voice,
Workers from Africa and Asia
Up to their eyes in the
Hollow of waves, their last
Hope hinged to the depths,
A pack of seeds churned
Up be an anchor and not
By a plow, for them:
The miracle of Italy is a curse.
For nothing, they’re left to drown.

After Erri De Luca
