At Sea


A search for some tragic debris
Turned up debris of another kind,

Rather than newsworthy the other was treated as a hindrance
Therein lies the tragedy of the commons,

Seen now, forgotten tomorrow—
Far too easy to escape resolution;

Just as darkness claims the world
An outburst of heart, visible upon the horizon.
