Rubidium

 

 

The best you can do
if you loose your inner rhythm
is to eat
a clock.
One with Rubidium,
which also helps
against depression,
epilepsy
and microbes.


Engineers
have good reason
to put it in turbines.
And so do stars,
which fill up
with it
before they die.


Use it as a timer
for comets and moons.
And never forget:
If you loose the beat,
then swallow
a clock.


From the book Chemical Poems – One On Each Element

This is an interesting poem. I've read it a dozen times, and not to be cynical, I can find nothing in it. That's rare, as rare as rubidium.
