The five main gyres of the oceans: the seven seas woven,
folding phytoplankton: swells and shallows, a plane rolling.
A refuse eddy, France cubed to edges, current-corralled
between continents; a confetto of plastics amorphous
threatens the blue-green shell of the ocean touched by the daylight
that feeds the deeper reaches, calm under the weight of darkness.
Eighty-Thousand tons of plastic, one point eight trillion pieces,
degrading in sun, smaller and smaller polymers:
neuston flotsam concentrate rivaling zooplankton.
Trending: fish populations dwindling in plastic currents columnar.
