Random Poem:

Electron Clouds
unknown

grandma's sold out.
 1
she lost her integrity,
 2
in clouds as it were.
 3
electron clouds;
 4
she was an heirloom
 5
of regret and stars
 6
spilling into ether
 7
and soil
 8
her death
 9
returned her to something
 10
the way the milkway made her
 11
in her mother's womb like you or I
 12
she is everywhere;
 13
oscillating between
 14
particles
 15
so ancient
 16
they are the siblings
 17
of moons, and
 18
nowhere.
 19
that I might rearrange them
 20
on a photograph---
 21
her sad atomic dust--
 22
