Happier Atoms Don’t Exist

Tao Lin
Mar 30, 2020

Black holes torture trees.

Turtles and birds get upset at my mom

because Chinese-Americans power cities.

Divination never happened.

I think about suburbs too much.

Crying fuses stars: it’s everything.

Years later, I believe it never happened.

Two shells collide. Yarrow appeared.

Conscious spinning is peculiar.

Thank you for reading my poem. Read more of my poetry here.
