silence surrounds
carved teeth

    Will Nantucket be forever associated, good and/bad with whale carvings?

    The silence can be both for the killed marine mammoths, never woolly but nonetheless shorn of any kind of communication.

    Interestingly the absence of articles (a, an, the) makes this all the more powerful and disturbing.

    Wonderful work, Frank! I like the sense of history in this one.
