thermodynamics

thermodynamics

A Poem by Alkonost

self-esteem evaporates,

sometimes sublimates

hot fog condense

that stings the eyes


possibilities proliferate

in headlines of exoplanets

with stuck tight star orbits

so close that iron shifts

atmosphere bound


no joke when nothing’s

solid, rock or otherwise

and tiny light points

laugh lines across 

your face at night.

You have a unique way with words. I thought it was about time two give more than a word or two review. i just dont see much point in stringing these things out when the word superb suffices, but i realise it might get a bit annoying, so.....
....This is superb :)

I like the use of science mixed in with dark scene you paint. It speaks to me as sardonically hopeful, but with the ultimate recognition that the hope is just that and nothing more.

Oh my gosh! Physics, I cannot think of it anymore. This poem is so unique. Nicely done!
