Ode to the Electron: Giver of Light
A married couple makes salted popcorn
in their quiet kitchen on Sunday night.
How the electron-filled kernels fly
as the temperature rises and rises!
The young lovers then hug harmoniously,
fascinated by coulombic dynamos that bounce
and coalesce into images on the TV,
and knowing that, over the weekend,
the entropy of the universe has somehow increased.
