It is exhausting to be element

At eighty the doctor was mercury.
Now I have reached erbium state

I and doctor were in our elements
As we moved through numbers.

At erbium I look forward to gold.
Doctor was Bismuth when dead

Wishing to be no more element.
It is so exhausting to be element.

(remembering Dr.Oliver Sacks on Gratitude)
