Sitting at the Dock / Palmyra Atoll


Floodlights at the seaplane dock attract krill
(small shrimp, worms & fish) which in turn means
"dinner" for the local Manta Rays.

Each pass with their cephalic fins open to funnel in the "soup",
the shark "cousins" would lift their left wing tip out of the water
and feet-slap the photographer.

Perhaps the health profession should reconsider
the value of Human Touch over that of latex.
