I took an opportunity to
Stand as close as humanly possible
To the world's largest animal

Once only the skull remained
Watched him deteriorate beyond repair
Restoration, restoration

This one restored skeleton
Is a composite of specimens
A synthesis of different life beings
Joined to dive deeply
Into California waters, the deep seas

Easy to walk under your skeleton
Into your rib cage, gentle giant
Where I began my journey of discovery
Restoration, restoration
Restoration, restoration
