Poet & Thief

Rubidium Rb, 37

You want to live in the shadows

where everything is soft, silver, gray,
want to easily vaporize,

ignite out of the blue.

Are highly reactive–polarizing,

a violet explosion.

Feel how heat shifts in me.

You are a believer

in spontaneous fission

But just try and separate

what you believe

from what you feel.
