Post any poetry here. It's just too hard to define "inspired" in this context, so we will settle for that which inspires.

Watching My Friend Pretend Her Heart Isn't Breaking — by Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer

Here's the first little bit...
On Earth, just a teaspoon of neutron star
would weigh six billion tons. Six billion tons
equals the collective weight of every animal
on earth. Including the insects. Times three.
I was rather amazed by this poem and am linking the page on which I discovered it because it also links a little video of the author reading it.

Hi Welles.
This simple poem hits home and really made me think...

I definitely recommend the short video as the writer reads her words. It is special.
