However big the whale may be, the tiny harpoon can rob him of life.

On the whales’ road

They found a Neanderthal skull in the North Sea,

shallow sea that was land.  Just a bone left,

shielded once in its skim of skin like the soft lives

running their course above on the whales’ road.

He’s his own message in a bottle, delivered by sea

as the fire takes messages to the questionable gods.
