Liquid metal metallic cravings

[font=Lucida]
I really truly don't know    
why
some things under the †  
sun and sky †
attract and catch my †  
fancy †
Quite queerly they †  
happen to be †
hot melting smelting †  
solids †
that melt into exquisite †  
liquids. †
Take for instance heated †  
liquid gold †
molten glass or molten †  
brass †
and to watch magma †  
'neath the earth's fold †
Ooh I love just about any †  
melting mass. †
 
With similar bizarre †  
ecstasy and fascination †
do I always watch †  
onscreen molten lava †
Gliding in serpentine †  
turns, oblivious of my †  
admiration †
Ah, I just love all that †  
golden molten mass .

Liquidised metal, liquid fire
I just don't ever tire
 
Sometimes I even have †  
such an eccentric craving †
to watch just any solid †  
beauty melting smelting †
that I satisfy this craving †  
by simply imagining †
the honey to be some †  
liquid fire gold glowing †  
in a crystal clear jar and †  
liken it to †
metallic gold syrup in †  
the furnace burning †
As if it were stagnant †  
mini-lava †
right before me churning ! †
 
As for other mesmeric †  
things †
that I find real eye- †
catching †
are those which †  
everybody else finds †  
ravishing. †
And they are in all shine †
dazzling diamond dust †
Glittery terrestrial gold †  
dust †
in mankind's metallic †  
materialistic lust.! †
 
Or Magical celestial stardust †
in heavenly mould and cast †  
Btw I am allergic to earthly †
dust!:)

A kind American poet told me about lava lamps when I posted this on another site.
