Black holes

From the LabLit science verse series

The scribbles of a small
child captures a likeness.

The artist's
conception of a black hole
a black dot surrounded
by glowing gas;
a hard edge and
perfectly round.

We tend to forget, the event
horizon of a black hole is
a process. It's impossible
to conceive.

Space collapses
and time slows as
you approach.
The process squeezes
things into
one dimension.

It eats everything that
draws near then
it cannibalizes itself.
