Singularities

LOST SINGULARITY
by Burgess Needle

If that Roman ship had a name it was gone:
cedar planks, rope, pitch and resin
weighed over 400 tons not counting
Wine, olive oil, and fish sauce stored
in a few thousand amphorae not to mention
thousands of almonds and a few millstones

[Hata Bildir]
