Watch 32

I’ve been thinking a lot about Captain Pollard and his disastrous seafaring voyage that inspired the tale of Moby Dick. He and his men were trapped in those lifeboats for days on end, and forced to eat each other to survive. And when they were finally rescued, Pollard and the other survivors resisted the rescue ship’s efforts to pull them aboard. They were too busy frantically shoving bones into their pockets so they could suck the marrow out later.

Right now I’m Captain Pollard, and I’m shoving as many Meg watches in my pockets as possible before quarantine is lifted and I’m forced to become a functioning member of society again.
