Oganesson, bending
                time inside

Janet Kuypers
12/29/21 Twitter-length Periodic Table poem
for element #118, Oganesson (Og)
on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr

Wanting an island of stability
when looking for elements,
we found the opposite instead:
superheavy elements
that blink out of existence.
I fear 118 may be the end:
supercharged electrons in this noble gas
travel near the speed of light, so
time & space bends inside them instead.
