Graphene

Graphene

If she desires
then her fingers
can touch
me across any ocean boundary
and leap 
through an empty sky
to the matter
of this distant orbit.
No membrane
can halt
singular energy
from igniting
cascading reactions
to become
the most powerful
force yielded by humans,
able to break bonds
and reform them
into beauty
absent of design.

-Robert L. Jackson III

  2. Good, good! But perhaps the desire must be mutual to create the full aura of this magic hyperbole?

  5. I think is what romance in humans is all about that our perceptive boundaries are unlimited as that urge, that need for to express our love surpasses everything. Thanks for your visit Rob.

  12. True love like graphene has amazing properties - stronger than steel, almost perfectly conductive, almost transparent, diamagnetic and oscillating between stability and instability ;-) Great take on the prompt and the chemistry metaphor quite apt!
