Sea Rainforest

See-a-sea-oh to the power of three,
of pearls and eggshells
and snails on walls,
disrobing on the sandy floor.

Star-shaped periwinkle,
skeleton silver,
white rock flowers,
bone fingers.

Green and yellow fairies
flip and dart through bubbles.
Ink spray flight, fish run
supertanker overhead.

Coral calcium silence.
Red disappears into cavities,
does not emerge.
