Creeping Death

Written by: Christi Kopp

It starts out so small 
A single dark spot 
Ending the summer trek
Sand sticky and black

Like an artery cut open
It continues to pulse
Sludge sliding across the water
Toxins pump through the ocean

The hemmorage cannot be stopped
Using Nature against herself
Coating the fowl while drowning the fish
Snuffing the life from the sea
