Can you soothe a black hole if its matter
Is made of hate? Gravitational field
Strong as blood and as painful as laughter.
So consumed with itself it cannot yield.
How much must it take to be satisfied?
Hand it your identity. Your favorite
Movie, and color, and song all defined
By another. You always feel contrite.
If time stands still when a star collapses
Can it be reversed? Or is it trapped by
gravity in a frozen reaction?
Confining everything that passes by.
Get close and your autonomy’s foregone
When you spot one, Pity it and move on
