Tributaries: “We are the Ocean”

By on September 20, 2017

By Urvashi Bahuguna   A whale fall is the carcass of a whale that has fallen to the ocean floor, & that sometimes creates complex, localized ecosystems supporting deep sea life.​   ​We have learned to hold the drift ​ in our jaws, seaweed ​breathing from a blowhole. We are the ocean trying one​ hand at perpetuity.
