gruesome tides pull sailors in
    and out
        while mollusks enjoy
plankton calm
    and sleep the shuckers by

history sleeps there, as well
   and pulls no words
   from their tight mother-pearl slits

Genre: History Existential

Meaning: History doesn't wait to be written by any authority; there are many concurrent histories at play in the world, and those that accept that difficult truth may find freedom in anonymity.
