Dark Matter//Brent Rydin


scientists now,

 

they’re saying,

 

okay,

 

there was

 

the Big Bang,

 

everything

 

outward outward outward

 

but Dark Matter was all like,

 

fuck that,

 

and

 

pulled back,

 

turned inward,

 

created

 

something

 

from all that everything,

 

and john milton’s like,

 

stop jacking my shit, science.
