The Annaberg Sugar Mill Ruins

August 2, 2016

skeletal fragments are all that remain of

The Annaberg Sugar Mill at Leinster Bay

 

the ruins sit atop a hill overlooking the

lazy turquoise waves of the Caribbean

 

slaves and, later, laborers painstakingly

purified cane juice via boiling crucibles

 

countless stories of toil occurred amid

the heavy stink of rum and molasses

 

like the mill’s issue and the structural

integrity of the brick and mortar constructs

 

they are forever lost within the maze

of tributaries of two centuries past
