resting on the ceramic counter
it just lay there cast aside

for me, evidence of another
once present now gone

with the empty aspirin bottle 
and a lone dirty sock

relics of a relationship

Soiled Pelican

stoic under layers of oil
pelican parent
facing the inevitable

as we watch
we consider
our connections
our responsibilities

every trip in the car
every plastic bottle
petroleum everywhere

every pelican
every hermit crab
every bit of clean water
soiled forever

now is too late
but we still need  to act
