Gretchen is a eight foot blue tipped shark. She patrols the sea wall. The edge of the bay where people snorkel and the open ocean where the boats sail. If I needed to get rid of someone….
Gretchen is a gentle soul. The cleaner of the beach.. Her sixty years is nothing more than a scale of time. Her role is to patrol. Opportunist. Call for justice. But the question is where the fish or person is to blame.
A bucket of chum floats in the distance. Gretchen waited for more.
