Atomic Poetry by Emmie Christie

Haikus wrap themselves around
Mona Lisa’s smile,
On the Sistine Chapel ceiling.
The numbers people who think math
Equals life –
Poetry grows in their minds
Like a seed cracking the sidewalk
Into paradoxes of squares and roots
Where like terms pair off.
No one can escape poetry.
It’s in the very air,
The atoms are composed of
Molecules arranged in a sonnet
Under a microscope.

Emmie Christie’s work tends to hover around the topics of feminism, mental health, cats, and the speculative such as unicorns and affordable healthcare. She has been published in Intrinsick and Allegory Magazine and she graduated from the Odyssey Writing Workshop in 2013. She also enjoys narrating audiobooks for Audible.
