event horizon

event horizon–

boundary of a black hole beyond which not even light can escape–

a point of no 


so imagine, my dear, a color 

that is not a color 

that is colorless, if you will, 

because a void is what it sounds like: 

a void. 

nothing where there should be something

not a color but a concept 

like the sensation of zero translated into wavelength 

like dots and dust and atoms and pixels 

like infinity in all of its glory 

the beauty of a never-ending line 

and do you hear them sing 

in that language of spheres and spirals? 

do you want to

    the snake is hungry 

    so the snake will eat 

    and eat it does, chewing, gnawing, 

    and will you ever notice, little thing, 

    that it is your own tail 

    you are swallowing? 


  • abalone

    from salt and foam and scales 

    steal the hearts of stone 

    nacreous shells, dying husks, 

    the honey-sweet flesh that once 

    clung to its bones 

    to die of thirst. 

  • eschatology

    meet me at the end of the world 

    the space between firestorms and tsunamis 

    across the acid oceans 

    and here, where the rot 

    has begun to reclaim the cities at last.
