Hashima / Gunkanjima / Battleship Island

Set sail from Nagasaki port to a tiny island abandoned, 
Coal mining community long gone,  
architectural skeletal remnants. 
The 'Nations first high' rise still standing, concrete.
But sea beaten, typhoon whipped, sun bleached. 
Haunting emptiness, tempting exploration.
Decades of decay prompt snapshot narratives, 
BondJamesBond villain comparison.
Head count on, head count off.
Head full of Bond girl fantasies.
