Cuttlefish turn on their colorful display
On and off from my place in this sea
We follow them in this little cove
Are you a eye of truth or a eye that sees the truth?
I’m a intruder, a non cuttlefish
You are not unwelcome, for now
Do we save you with a referendum? Is that how we humans decide things now?
This is my favorite stone to hide under
Our collective energy feeds into your ocean, are you doing ok?
it’s getting too hot for us
I am sorry this is all our fault
