wanted to try my hand at one of those wikipedia excerpt poems. title: “the ginko stays” transcript under the cut
the diversity of uses and meanings combined with the complexity of the feelings involved makes love unusually difficult to consistently define
scientists found 170 million-year-old fossil ginkgo leaves have endured to the present day, as if the fossil had “come to life again.”
the color wheel theory of love. during autumn, the leaves turn a bright yellow, then fall, sometimes for years.
the universe goes through repeated cycles with each cycle lasting 4,320 million years. the ginkgo stays the existence of altruism in nature is at first sight puzzling, such love might exist between family members, “unconditional selflessness” to a tree. ancient greek philosophers identified six forms of love: flower, leaf, stem, bark, root, seed. six gingko biloba specimens survived the atomic bombing of hiroshima, 1 to 2 kilometers from ground zero. they still live there today.

I keep rereading @headspace-hotel’s Wikipedia poems and thinking I’d like to try it, until yesterday something possessed me and I went into a screenshot frenzy, and assembled them today.

[ID: A poem cut and pasted from various wikipedia articles, with poem text as follows: 
humans are generally creatures of habit,
adapted to occupy empty scavenged mollusc shells to protect their fragile exoskeletons
They carry home with them
Popular sayings 
Popular sayings about homes include
I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
i want to be alone.
I was reading a book the other day.
I’d like to kiss you, but I just washed my hair.
I’ll be back.
Research showed that these home-place identities are crucial
that we feel severe consequences for not
letting air flow in and out of the lungs.
offering a shield against rough weather, wildlife and dirt.
“Come In”
One version of the chorus for Come In is as follows:
Come in, come in, I'll do the best I can
Come in, come in
because it is distressing.
the world is a heavy burden
particularly where words are insufficient.
Call Me If You Get Lost
I’ll Carry You in My Arms
Bring You Home
Home loss.
See also.
Notes
humans are the only ones to have lost
for example, “I don't feel there is any place I really fit in this world.” 
I want to go home may also refer to:
a place that is close to the heart
a particular person who is not interchangeable with anyone else.
a strong desire to form new relationships.
a strong and inevitable feeling that exists in human nature.
I want to go home may also refer to:
a need rather than simply a want.
"What do we know?"
An affectional bond is persistent, not transitory. 
“I’ll Carry You Home” 
during an average human's life
it must find a larger shell and abandon the previous one
adsum
I am here
“Come to the west and make a home with me there.” End of description.]
anyway I saw this post and got very excited about the concept of wikipedia poems

I am an ouroboros
~ A poem about mental illness, healing and snakes
Inspired by the works of @headspace-hotel and @tamiscolaris
~
I'm not really sure the point I'm trying to make in this; it's more an exploration of my own mental health, how I view it, and, in turn, how I view myself

              In the sky, one more star 1.↑ Following Laika, the USSR sent eight more dogs to space Training [Edit]        Professional information Occupation:     Space Dog Active Years:    October-November of 1957 Famous For:     Being the first living creature to orbit Earth Laika was found as a stray (It was thought that those animals had already learnt to bear extreme conditions) « Laika was calm and charming ».¹³ Before the go was given one of the scientists took Laika to his home so she would play with his kids. What’s that big and colorful ball? And why am I orbiting around?² (”I wanted to do something nice for her:                    She had so little time left to live.”ⁱ⁷)
                           2.↑ Laika died hours later                                  from overheating. Homage [Edit]
  “After placing Laika down   and before closing the hatch,   we kissed her on the nose   and wished her a good trip, knowing she wouldn’t survive the flight.”                           Laika’s breathing rhythm                                          rose
                          her cardiac frequency went                               from 130 to 240 beats
                           Vital sign monitoring went out                              between 5 and 7 hours later On April 11th, 2008 a monument was inaugurated in honor of                     Laika, at the heart of Moscow List of:              The Closest Stars Today, still      I don’t know if I am                       the “first man”                                     or the “last dog”                                                  to ever go to space.
