The Polymers,those giant Molecules,  Like Starch and Polyoxymethylene,  Flesh out, as protein Serfs and plastic  Fools,                                                   This Kingdom with Life's Stuff.   Our time has seen The synthesis of Polyisoprene  And many cross-linked Helixes unknown  To Robert Hooke; but each primordial    Bean                                                   Knew Cellulose by heart.  Nature alone  Of Collegen and Apatite compounded   Bone.


John Updike from “The Dance of the Solids,” in
