Small stone for today

The sea is vast and dark and deep and it will keep all of its secrets. Including its lack of fish, for now, until it is too late. A woman tonight read a concrete poem about dead starfish and I was reminded of the first time I saw a beach awash with starfish corpses and it felt like the end of the world. The thought of all those wrecks and scraps of plastic and the oil that lie there gradually moving with the moon no longer just harmless bottle messages within its foam is overwhelming tonight.
