It’s in the deepest darkness,

where folded life emerges only with the

raging tempest

or when silence occupies rustling shore.


Untouched they eat flickering moonlight

catch laser sunbeams and jump over foaming waves


yet, don’t recognize our white secretions

we are so proud of, cheap surrogate

of every ounce of coaled milk we suck out

of the earth’s mouth


It’s the new plankton,

It’s the new algae,

It’s the new jellyfish


and the liver transplant in that whale

over there,

they never asked for.
