In Poems

Sarah Patrick

Though we saw of you in 1853, it wasn’t until 1879 that we found you.
Here long after the rest of us, long enough that the life of our universe so far is only a mere 1/8 of your half life.
Wise but still modern, along with your friend cobalt you stop our magnets dying.
Perfect for headphones, you are closer to us than we know.
