pier life

June 29th, 2016 § 0 comments

At a dock we are surrounded by encrusting organisms that are constantly siphoning, nibbling, lapping, and even spitting the captive waters around us. At night you can hear the crackling life below the water line.  Its creepy but also beautiful, and I am happy to be reminded that there are some humble creatures whose activities aggregate in a soft hum of cleansing and mitigation.  The offal of the beautiful city of Charleston, the runoff, waste and byproducts of this glitzy and complicated town, find their way through the gills and cells of my slimy friends here. Bon appetite, y’all.
