A thin layer rich in organics,
the fauna above, depauperate--
some disaster, perhaps an impact,
is recorded here,
the layer contains microbial cysts,
peculiar forms found nowhere else,
cysts are made to last:
we can revive them, and do,
they don't eat culture medium,
they eat the plastic dish...
some kind of opposable-thumbed theropod,
some bulge-headed raptor,
some somebody reached such a civilized state,
they could choke the oceans with plastic
just like us.

This happens, yo:
