Lost Grip

Photographer: Yannis Behrakis

The leathered skin

of a dark hand,

in stark contrast

to the orange

of, in this case,

the inaptly named

life-craft

 

The white tips

of curled fingers,

as if they were stretched

to clutch at a thread

of life

 

Another lost life

in this mass migration

Deaths, markers of desperation,

along this watery route
