today everything we knew came to an end
it is the end of the world as we knew it

don't cry for the starfish
who released their arms
before dissolving

don't cry for the sea lion pups
whose frail bodies are starving
who eat their dead at the water's edge
obeying a final survival instinct

don't cry for the salmon
whose carmine meat has turned yellow

or for the humpback whale
who song is stilled 

nor for the sardines
whose blood stains the sea red

the giant sea serpents
are rising from the depths
leaving behind their inanimate bodies

through the algae's veins
suspended in the deeps
among the drowned souls
runs the sweat and tears
of the unleashed fury
of pluto and uranus

cry not
all the sea's creatures
return to the heart
of the infinite mother
all the creatures return
to the center
