Ticket to Write – 37

Electronica Lullaby


There is something oddly
perhaps irrationally
about manually drawing molecules
crystal structures even better
*click*click* rough grate
of mouse dragging on desk
accompanied by
the ordered proliferation
of delicate black lines
all alike
a tree growing through a carbon net.
Autofill in Excel is similar
a cascade of calculations
& before you can blink
all your dilutions are accounted for.
The effortless order appeals.
but infinitely harder
is doing it all by hand
in purple fountain pen.
