“The Pacific Ocean Becomes a Caldron.“-The New York Times
The warm water was a surprise.
The eastern Pacific.
The coast of Mexico.
Each of these phenomena,
They appear at the stroke of midnight.
And while the storm’s strength
Could be very powerful,
A question remained.
Are scientists being found stranded
On California shores?
They appear, showing up where they are not expected.
The second hand, minute hand, and hour hand line up.
The ocean – tropical sunfish
Off the Alaska coast, Guadalupe
Fur seals, emaciated sea lion pups
Who study such storms –
Harmful algal blooms and the heat
Generated by toxic shellfish.
What made it such a monster?
