Periodic Properties of a Feline

Day 5

Periodic Properties of a Feline


Highly reactive when encountering containers.
This element will bend and shape
itself into every squared or spherical
vessel  it comes across.
Acts like a fluid, but is not.
Though an unpredictable occurrence,
this element is also a good conductor of heat.
And by some paradoxical understanding in the universe,
can return to its original state 9 times over.

In this reality or the simultaneous next which is
invisible to the naked eye,
it spontaneously travels in positive charges.
When exposed to light, it can stabilize,
remain perfectly solid.

-Alejandra Garza
NAPOWRIMO 2017

NaPoWriMo – “here is our prompt for Day Five (as always, the prompt is optional). In honor of Mary Oliver’s work, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that is based in the natural world: it could be about a particular plant, animal, or a particular landscape. But it should be about a slice of the natural world that you have personally experienced and optimally, one that you have experienced often. Try to incorporate specific details while also stating why you find the chosen place or plant/animal meaningful.”

Poetics Aside – “For today’s prompt, pick an element (like from the periodic table), make it the title of your poem (or part of the title), and then, write the poem. Anything goes from hydrogen to oganesson.”
