Manatee

The manatee’s slow, heavy dignity   

His movements, careful, searching, grazing, sure 

Magic-porridge-pot-snout digging for more 

Mournful, shadowed, aged eyes, stare darkly 

He’s pulled by a deep curiosity   

Unwary giant, close to the shore 

No enemies, a friend on the sea floor   

Rising, ponderous, poised, just so he can see 

But he rises to a hull’s black shadow 

Drawn by the spinning of blurred propellers 

He hears it, feels itpulse rippling  

His huge flanks. Risingrisingshallow 

His grey skin, his short flippers, his whiskers  

human evolution of scarring
