Soda Lime (Science)

soda lime

running out of time

missing caps

data gaps

Hundred degree ovens burn

Hair melted onto door handles turned

Up til midnight weighing soil

feeling like your blood is about to boil

analyzing equations,

suggesting permutations

calibrating scales

reading other’s tales

synthesizing results

brain overshot like a catapult

its been a long time

since you slipped into sleep

its been a long time

since you thought this deep

beaker swirling

mind twirling

hit print

teaching stint

Soda lime

conference time

scientific success

world recess.

(science is the poetry of reality)
