I keep thinking about jellyfish
A crumpled heap of bullseye-covered ones stinging my feet
when the reusables were left at home.
PSAs from my school years reminding us to cut six pack rings,
more packaging than I asked for or know what to do with
covering us head to toe – K-Cup to vitamin pack
the capitalists disregard so silently loud that
I’ve curled up in a shell while choking on a plastic bag.
My internal monologue a Discovery Channel fun fact break-bumper:
“more people die annually from coconuts hitting them than sharks attacks”
“did you know? sea turtles eat jellyfish”
