Coyote Mercury

words, birds and whatever else by James Brush

The Wreck of a Century

titanic erasure

The Wreck of a Century

this graveyard of metal
its attraction so strong

so cold so deep
one coward radioed

the future, drifted
to our modern world

everything so wondrous
came crashing down

Erasure poem created from “Unseen Titanic.” National Geographic. Apr 2012, pp 87-88


  1. I absolutely love this poem. Fab, James.
