purified lithium


 chemical crane,
 lithium albatross.

 iodized magnetic zion
  in my head.

  i'll run for days,
 inside a solar haze.

corrosive reduction 
under the sun.

the old search for
 the purified lithium.

metallic filter to drain
 the silt.

empty the heart of all
 its guilt.

so salt the cracker and 
absolve the sin.

 an alkaline base full 
 of wrinkled skin.
