- Jaycelyn Ruotolo
I am too alone.
Like a single celled organism
In a cellular jungle of complex species.
One electron in a cloud of protons,
We could be like the eightieth element,
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.
To cause acute
And because I am so biohazardous
I am left alone
Sitting in a glass beaker
