    That's so tragic, an innocent little sea creature reminding us of the filth we throw at them. I love sea creatures so much.

    The title "surely this is yours" could have related to anything... At first I thought it might have been a ring or something of the sort as is... "hey will you marry me I've got you a ring, surely this is yours" kinda thing but how wrong was I? =(

    I hope you don't mind me pulling this apart the way I am going to... It's just the only way I could, it will all make sense.

    Tears welled behind my
    scuba glass:
    The opening sets a scene of sadness and (obviously) but it also makes the reader wonder why tears have begun to well, what has happened to make a grown man to cry or atleast well up as not many men would admit to this happening..

    a seahorse
    returning OUR waste
    Wow, this just hit hard because we're doing to our creatures and our planet and it would make even a grown man weep. It's absurd that we're doing this and that many of us 'humans' just don't give a f.. K.

    A wonderful yet sombre piece and thanks for the link too.
