British poet and speculative fiction writer recently got a little creative with the Periodic Table, writing one haiku for each element.
throw yourself at anyone,
decked out in diamonds.
Locked in rock and sand,
age upon age
awaiting the digital dawn.
Deadly bone seeker
released by Fukushima;
your sweet days long gone.
