A Brief Note

about the Ocean,

with No Mention

of Its Blueness

All along, the ocean knew we were coming. Now, don’t you give it too much credit: at one point, it thought it had got us for good. 

Alas! Here you are now, reading our story, exactly as we tell it to you. As you well know, the sea has never -- for all of its strength and terrifying might -- been known for its smarts. And that, for us,  has made all the difference.

That, and the fact that all pipes lead to the sea.
