Writer Jack Fingon realizes too late that his life of "intuition and attraction" has produced little to value, and nothing to remember. To settle a piece of unfinished business, Fingon devises a plan to fulfil the testamentary wish of French vagabond poet Blaise Cendrars -- to be buried in the Sargasso Sea where "life first burst from the depths of the ocean floor towards the sun".
I will be a man fulfilled if, when my time comes, / I can disappear anonymously and without regret, / At the originating point of our world, the Sargasso Sea
