For Three-Line-Tales Week 23, hosted by Sonya of 100 words only and the Daily Post Daily Prompt: darkness

When they lost the ferry, the town died another death; gone were the giddy American tourists, wallets out, loving the exchange rate.

Once a proud place with a busy harbour; a forest of masts, a constellation of sails, cries of a thousand sailors in a hundred languages.

Humming mills, factories, production lines to empty-eyed darkness; shift whistles marking busy to and froing, greetings to deafening silence. {66}
