Abstract

[Extract] WHEN I FIRST SAW IT, I THOUGHT SOMETHING HAD DIED. And in my waterhole. At least, my favorite waterhole, the best one on the place, and the place has been ours since granddad's time. Then I thought, pollution. Those Neanderthal pig-shooters have been down here again, lighting fires and dropping beercans at their backsides and slopping the waterhole full of oil. Because it looked like an oil slick. A raggedy, ten-foot wide oil slick, not quite above the water, not quite under it. Dull yellow, bobbly, undulating, sort of. Like a mat of old wattle flowers. Or the half-submerged rafts of yellow gloop you see, out near the islands, when the coral spawns.
