I am too alone.

Like a single celled organism

A protista

In a cellular jungle of complex species.

One electron in a cloud of protons,


We could be like the eightieth element,

So mercurial,

But I always appear to be so negative,

Incapable of bonding to anything

And incredibly neurotoxic

I am unwanted. I am unneeded.

Even recalled form thermometers.

Unstable enough

To cause acute


And because I am so biohazardous

I am left alone

Sitting in a glass beaker

To sulk.
