Broken treasures, beached

Sea squirts look delicious but what the eye doesn't smell, the nose doesn't see. They won't make allies in the kitchen if you dry a washed-up sea squirt there.

These tiny "bones" can rattle, but they never lived inside.
Bryozoans show theirs off, and never need to hide.

Free jewels on every urchin
And wonders in the walls and spines
