We Have Lost Something


A black hole opened up
still fresh and pixilated
with high definition edges
built on the computer screen.

It was all consuming
delicate and beautiful,
transfixing him completely.

The pulse of the universe
landed in my 4th finger
the weight of it more
than I could bear lying still
beneath the sheets.

I stepped outside
the magnetic pull lessened
as the air got thicker.  The ground
wet and shining and littered
with unknowing frogs.

From the light in the window
I saw his body enveloped
by the nothingness of space.
