(for Ken Taylor)

if you swing the telescope (either
way) you will see

the seals. but a
hundred in 1901 a
systematic ex
termination (as with
most other things on
this continent) no regard
for balance
no imagination.

according to survey
an estimated four &
five thousand on
seal island

the quonsett hut
on the topmost rocks.  they
swim in the pools

sleek.  jumping
the waves the
winds & seas
of the antarctic

nothing between here &
the South Pole.
