As above, so below, boundary line separates a layer of the thermocline, in the depths cooler temps nonetheless disguise invisible sediment insidious, higher up the plasma melts the skin, cooks from within, electromagnetic radiation burns begin.
Buoyancy against gravity precludes a sense of urgency, yet purposeful movements remain the order of the day, flocking home from school, on to work, or wherever fish hover in the timeless eternity of now.
Scattered souls loiter in warm shallow water, plankton and detritus electrified to a phosphorescent thermocline, lucky school drawn towards the source of disruptive spillage from the global village.
Subaquatic ozone clouds resist the blast radius, beyond the threshold radioactive plasma oxidation accelerates, the physical laws of spacetime break down in the vortex, schizophrenia becomes commonplace, crowds are dispersed.
Every downward spiral yields a reciprocal updraft, a squadron of contemplative denizens dive deep, still not knowing why the water is getting warmer.
A society of similar yet distinctive personalities takes all the same risks, positions change and shift, substitute one for another, the street glow reflects individual facets and faces, all bound for the same places.
Having a blast, electromagnetic pulse and thermonuclear resonance sear these silhouettes into the fossil record.
Happy hour in the sweet spot between survival, adaptation and evolution, thermocline dispersal and communal frenzy, naturalistic and surrealistic, many worlds encompass multidimensional geometry interlinking the species for future enterprise.
Lofty ambitions entice communal progress into the light, celebratory tribal markings and cubist tendencies unify those fellow travelers linked by creative obsession in every aspect, all different but all the same, following meridians of global electromagnetic flow in alignment with destiny.
Electrified angels on horseback, skimming the primordial landscape of the ocean reef, close knit formation of neon camouflage darts back to school, sailing through waters clear and tranquil in search of evolution.
