implausible deniabilty

diatribe and specious reasoning are circulating floating
like vast aggregations of micro-plastic bits too small
to be easily seen in the deep blue descent off Midway atoll
thus easily denied yet plankton are ingesting this future
even now our plastic skin begins to crack in the relentless sun
as hospitals scurry to add more stories megaliths to hold the tomes
of a species intently excreting its demise its mistaken infallibility
