The Properties of Ether

(CH3 CH2)2O – hydrolyzed ethanol
colourless; aromatic;
highly flammable

Aristotle said ether
was inalterable,
having no beginning
and no end.

I thought
it would be safe,
-life in the ether-

You were ribbons of thought,
recipes for rye bread,
formulas for finding
the circumference of a circle.

Your existence
was a theory.
I didn't know you'd bleed.
