Day 20- 10.6.20
In the Deep
Down below its sleek surface
the sea is more city than jungle.
Everyone is busy all the time
predators are smooth and
chaos unfolds in plain sight.
Down under the grey waves
there's a stillness like a cloudless sky,
like the shell of a sleeping turtle.
Unlike in a city, though, the bottom feeders
do not fear the shark, and
the krill are not astonished
when the whale swallows them whole.
