Wanderlust inside my genes-
you understand yet I can’t explain it.
Tattooed myself a compass rose;
even had the words planned out.
Magnetic north was elusive,
my needle was never static.
External fields always moving-
such chaos was attractive.
Slowed like aging sap,
just a little rub gave charge.
Attracting lighter temporary adhesions;
Air signs catch the abstract thoughts
as Pisces pump them out.
Ironic; anemia causes magnetic susceptibility, ha.
Riding ferrous peaks and valleys
Manipulated by polar changes
Strange- the sensation of a covalent bond…
I had forgotten I like chemistry, what attraction!
Atoms search for more stable states…
as within, as all around.
Pouring myself into you,
I became more positive and you,
You became more negative.
No longer just Gilbert’s permeable membrane;
It has become more selective.
Osmosis nearly dried me out,
close the circuit then give back-
a constant flow of electrons
now is crystalline;
I want an ionic bond.
