Lead

is the pliable metal
the roofer of the rich
the poisoner of the poor
the metal of death
the liner of coffins and sarcophagi,
quite different from the lead in man's pencil:
fragile and voluble graphitic carbon -
carbon which made us
on this carbonic chthonic and tectonic
Earth to dwell
ignores us
and our hysteric helium heaven
as well as our carbonyl sulphurous hell.
