For Example

     The sun never set within the British territories
     The yingzheng of Qin burned all the bamboo books
     And buried all the Confucianists alive; the other
     Partner-quantum is intricately entangled somewhere
     On the other side of the world; the aliens are
     Travelling in and out of the hollowed moon
     The American super-soldier fucked every
     Female in the village; the mers is plaguing
     The old soul right now; Greece’s debt became
     A huge crisis for all Europe; as many as
     Eighty million Chinese males can never hope
     To find their own sexual partners; the ants
     Invade your house in June and October every
     Year; certain words grouped together can
     Win a fame forever; it’s never explained
     Why the main character came to town, while
     An ant is trying to push a water droplet home…
