oh my god???
disclaimer this is not a full blown review, just something i happened to stumble upon spontaneously, but
i love this so much???
i think my absolute favorite thing about this is how cohesive your entire poem is, like a laser focused vignette of this failed relationship with someone, and i am obsessed with the way you lay out your observations on this person and your feelings regarding them using CHEMISTRY
ionic equilibrium in international anarchy
the way you contrast the strength of an ionic bond and the languid system of an anarchy (or atleast that is the way i interpreted it)
did your discontent find contedness in our broken glass and chemical bonds
HELLO??? THIS CLEVER WORDPLAY??? DISCONTENT FINDING CONTENTEDNESS ?? next time i meet someone who is constantly complaining and dissatisfied, I WILL REMEMBER THIS DESCRIPTION
new jaded elitism
the oxymoron !!!!! aHHHHH
AND THOSE LAST VERSES DESCRIBING THE NATURE OF IONIC BONDS FORMED THROUGH ANIONS AND CATIONS AS A METAPHOR FOR HOW TWO PEOPLE ACTING AS POLAR OPPOSITES ARE ATTRACTED TO EACH OTHER!!! AND ELECTRONS BEING THE REASON THAT METALS BECOME LUSTROUS AND SHINY AND YOU EXPRESS THAT THROUGH the term "ever-anionic opulence"
AND GLASS BEING IONICALLLY BONDED ABOUT TO SHATTER APART AS A METAPHOR FOR THE RELATIONSHIP ITSELF AND ITS EMINENT DESTRUCTION DESCRIBED AS COLLISION THEORY-
this is perfect this poem has me REELING i LOVE IT!!!
