These individual tiny planets
are dead cool. They don’t have
special names like Uranus or Pluto,
but are all betrothed to the
blase name of Electrons.
They twirl an invisible thread
around the Sun. No, it’s not made up
of hydrogen and helium. Nor is it on fire.
Their Sun is made up of Protons and Neutrons
who maintain an aura of aloofness,
but yet pull the Electrons in
with their brimming positivity.
It’s a bit like that stop-start romance
between the girl next door
and the boy up the next street,
don’t you think?
