in a foreign country
tiny noodles lick an iceberg
with uncommon modesty
(the noodles, not the iceberg, which its admirers call
"The Greenstone," made famous by "School of Rock"
and other films about geologists)
cone-shaped microbes ricocheted from the seafloor
sampling fossilized ship's food from the Titanic
in a luxury undisturbed by pop culture sediment
-- Glenn R. Frantz
Could these be the world's oldest fossils?
