2013 Post 16: Dirty Water

aromatic leftovers
in unprocessed clumps.
blacker than coal,
older than sunlight.

adrift in the currents
of an ethereal ocean
wafting on hydrogen breezes.

soak up the sun and 
do laps, lazily. 
feeling indestructible enough
to ingest some cyanide
and methanol
but better keep plenty of water at hand.

physics and chemistry,
reason and rime.
