I Am Skooter
So here's us, on the raggedy edge.
Meanwhile in the forest / In a parliament of trees,
The ink will crack and dry all up, But the compass will swing anyways.
And we don't need mathematics / And we don't need submarines

Astaxanthin? If I can’t pronounce it, should I really be eating it?
“When the fish near market size, farmers add astaxanthin, a pigment similar to beta-carotene, to their feed to give their gray flesh a salmony pinkish glow…The pharmaceutical giant Hoffman-La Roche, a leading supplier of astaxanthin to salmon farms, distributes a “SalmoFan” - kind of like a paint-store swatch - to let farmers perfect the desired hue.”
