Abyssopelagic

Blue fantasy of otherworldly life
and death, there are creatures gliding
in your deepest corridors who have escaped
our great obsession with the catalogue—
They do not miss us. They have no need
for nomenclature and derivatives,
nor gestures of display. Imagine
hearts more exemplary than probes,
perforating the murky dark.

  1. True and beautiful! “Pelagic” is a thrilling word, “Abyssopelagic”, though cumbersome out of water, is thrilling too.
