Beautiful Dragons 4
My Dear Watson

Think of the periodic table, if you dare. To those of a scientific disposition it is a tool. 118 or so squares divided into sections, metals here, Noble Gases there, arranged into periods and groups. Gorgeous, if you know how to read it. To the rest of us, mysterious, a code to unlock another world. Fair game, then, for poetry which sometimes aspires to decode human experience. Yep. But how do you find a poet to interpret every element on the table. Well, you just invite them. Elementary, My Dear Watson.
