Little Miracles 3: A Quantum Angel Spinning-off Particles

I call you
Quantum Angel

because you’re so unbelievable
not even physicists can pin
you down

the way you
flit through atoms

you must have wings
the way you punk time
your wings must be turbocharged
the way you fling particles
we can’t keep up 
where do you get so many 
tiny spinning things?
you must have a secret source
or you’re a maestro of illusion
a tall-tale provider, a teller
who tells in sparks and quarks 
the most fundamental things 
mere things almost
in super hadron mist 
colliders
