Quick through the slick blue waves, they leap shining like opals. Their grey bodies plunge into the weightless deep. Through reefs and seaweed they zip clicking code and blowing silver rings of smokeless air. They play among anemone and jellyfish their bottled-noses piercing the mountain of water. They say that if you're lost at sea, a fellow mammal in distress one might come like an angel from some world no one believes in anymore and lift your tired body up to light and air They say not to confuse this with human things like compassion, as they process their bodies into the tuna.
