Mystery

Electrons circle

protons, neutrons

of an atom’s nucleus.

 

Radio signal, steady

beeps fade out, long

distance voyager.

 

People talk as their

electric and magnetic

fields converge.

 

Atoms bond together,

make molecules that

form everything.

 

Lone dog left

in a cage wonders

what he did wrong.

 

Biosphere clings

to lithosphere’s roll

round an elliptical.
