Black Hole Bypass

Whatever goes in never gets out–

objects disappear like water

that circles a curved sink

round and round

draining to gravity so powerful

to a curvature so extreme

it stretches space and time

its velocity exceeding that of light–

bent, twisted light

unable to escape.

Objects enter this black

bottomless pit

churning violently–overconsumption

flares its capacity to consume

the increase in volume

leads to rapid absorption

without gaining absorption

of energy.

An abundance of abdomen

lies bare, subdued–

silently gestures an appeal to

a sky lit by surgical lamps

surrenders to the approach

of a surgeon’s cold

cold scalpel.
