Random Poem:

Electron Clouds

grandma's sold out.
she lost her integrity,
in clouds as it were.
electron clouds;
she was an heirloom
of regret and stars
spilling into ether
and soil
her death
returned her to something
the way the milkway made her
in her mother's womb like you or I
she is everywhere;
oscillating between
so ancient
they are the siblings
of moons, and
that I might rearrange them
on a photograph---
her sad atomic dust--
