Hulk in the Humber by Julie L. Corbett

tarred talisman, twice
each tide-turn day, washed
in estuarine river and sea-brine,
a cargo of sand and slit,
anchoring her. raucous gulls
rest on the bow—facing the wind.
settled, scuttled with a firm trim,
this broken barge, watches
the tugs and freight go by
