Drawing line formulas until the carbons seem to turn to stars and all the other molecules seem to follow until o-chem constellations light up my paper, glittering gold and mesmerizing.

One day, stories will be told about the grudge between methane and ethane and how ethanol once became so angry, he burned and became carbon dioxide and water. Tales will be told by old men with spectacles and chemical stains on their hands about how the criminal urea was simply ammonium cyanate and not as elusive as everyone believed.

I wish everyone could understand how fascinating chemicals are.

like talking to trees, your whispers hidden in the wind. only sometimes the trees talk back. like wishing on a star and having the star wish on you. say what you like; there's always someone listening.
a very merry thank you.
