Toxic

Emily Khym

Slithering slimeballs

Green UFOs

Scavenging algae

 

The crisp air

Swept over 

The drowsy

                   ocean 

                            waves

As ants marched 

in and out 

Of the tiled dock.

 

Green balls of slime

Danced to the tune 

Of the salty breeze,

Bumping 

And pushing each other.

 

Fish suffocated

Under the oxygen-deficient waters

And people 

Stared in 

   Awe

At their 

              Reckless artwork.
