"Is this a remnant of a bizarre instrument, born from an old sweeping brush with neglected tuning pegs and remnants of strings? Or is this a rickety, overcrowded boat with people on the run, torn from their own roots, desperate for a new existence? A person on board sings a sad song that disappears in the wind. Then it is silent, icy quiet, except for the rhythmic lapping of the water.
It is night, the boat wraps itself in black and mourns what is no more and will never return."
