Almost gone

Vaquita are:

Acrobatic swimmers

Quiet

Underwater Pandas

Innocent yet killed

Timid and shy

Almost gone

Her majesty

Lungs feeling tight,

She rises to the surface,

Inhaling the crisp, ripe sea air.

A huge ship  breaks the horizon.

Many huge binoculars are aimed at her,

Many lights flash, discovering her majesty.

Exposed, she slips away forever.
