Today I am joining the d’Verse Poets for their “Let’s Get Elemental” challenge.  I have chosen to write about the element Plutonium.

Heavy metal lethargy
kissed by everyday air,
destroying self through
spontaneous combustion!
How did I get to be
such an explosive metallic
mess–unnatural, unstable?
Plutonium radiation
within my cranium
waiting to self-destruct,
poison with the force of
a detonating nuclear bomb!
What will I become?
Maybe I can simply decay
into something more stable.
