North Atlantic right whale

Eubalaena glacialis

panic on the bridge
blood in the water
there was nowhere for him to go but down

take me to a river in the mountains
i need to see them once before i go away
my heart is a plastic bag burning in the ocean
ooh something big just hit the boat

welcome home
we’re so glad you made it down
crawl over his body drink his blood
stay with us rot with us

another evening with the lights from the harbor
screaming their way down the deep blue
sorry we couldn’t leave you if we tried
that’s just how things work down here

now water coming in
and blood rushing out
if it had to happen it’d have been nice not to have been alone
there’s water in my eyes
metal in the ground
that’s not supposed to be there but what the hell do i know
