II Below Noah’s Ocean
What fish swam in those waters?
Did the buried mountains shape the currents?
What creatures hid in the caves?
What fish picked the flesh of the dead?
Did playful dolphins dismantle their houses?
What coral grew on their bones?
Or was it water pressure that pressed
everything into a new topsoil that waited for the sun?
Overhead, the ark sailed by.
Who removed the barnacles from the olive tree?
