Atlantic Ghost Crab (m) -- Ocypode quadrata, daring the morning shift with "Vicissitudes of the Creator":
'Fish has laid her succulent eggs
Safe in Saragossa weed
So wound and bound that crabbed legs
Nor clattering claws can find and feed.
Thus fish commits unto the sea
Her infinite future and the Trade
Blows westward toward eternity
The universe her love has made.
But when, upon this leeward beach,
The measureless sea journey ends
And ball breaks open, from the breach
A deft, gold, glossy crab extends
In ring-side ritual of self-applause
The small ironic silence of his claws.' ~ "Vicissitudes of the Creator" by Archibald MacLeish
