2/30: Aurostibite

 

Aurostibite

 

i’m not radioactive

there’s a horizon over my grimace

lead grey no gammas protuberant teeth

the sonogram catches my gravity

 

diploidal i’m a star symbol a fracture among the shimmer

my crystal system two Ty fighters on the wind

a metallic streak

 

Au get off my diaphaneity

What I lack in sulfur I make up in cell dimension

666 – mark of the beast

Good luck finding my cleavage
