Alchemist Eulogy

From Robert Hamill Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

White limestone smashed in heavy mortar,

Crumbles to pyrex beaker.

When splashed with vinegar,

Foamy gas molecules climb steep glass sides.</p>

Unslaked by timid reaction, fevered alchemist drips

Viscous oil on cotton puffs in rounded barrel.

Sputtering red fuse smokes to dangerous cellulose,

When bracing blast breaks beaker

And spreads alchemist

Across county and country.
