Velvet: The container ships of Savannah

“A Maersk container ship puttered along the river before me on its way into port. I watched it slide by, its massive diesel engine pumping and pushing the vessel up river. I sat in my car and watched the boat glide past. The multicolored containers on board glistened in the sunlight.

As usual, I wondered what cargo sat packed inside those bright boxes.”

– from the new novel Velvet by Echo LaVeaux
