We made an ecosystem where there had never been one before,
all quite by accident.  High above our atmosphere, all the 
detritus and garbage we released into space -- the loose
panels; the human fecal matter; spent reaction products --
made a welcoming environment the same way a reef attracts

And the fish came.  Tiny flukes, white and bloated, the size    
and shape of rice grains, affixed themselves to metallic
surfaces and absorbed whatever nutrients happened by.
Multiplying proportionally to human space exploitation,
they are now ubiquitous and routinely clutter cylinder
hulls at L-5.

It's bad to shit where you sleep.
