“Alice: How long is forever? White Rabbit: Sometimes, just one second.”
Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland



After, she wonders about the day they split
the atom. Were they fully aware of what

they were doing, or did it just sort of
…happen. Were there witnesses? Did

they know right away the gravity of
what they’d done? Did anyone mourn

its once-wholeness?

    This is a wonderful piece on brokenness — very simple and thought provoking.
