Her gravitational field was a
maelstrom of midnight obsessions, a
vortex of multiple personalities, a
whirlpool of parasomnias, and it
pulled him in, sponged him, imbibed

bursting molecules, an unbound
liquid of passion, a train of subatomic
particles jumping the tracks, and
much more, and much less, both at
the same time. He heard some
distant voices (did they warn him?
did they encourage him?), but he
kept falling - falling down, falling
apart, falling into pieces, free falling,
collapsing and disintegrating
incessantly on every somersault
toward the unfathomable…
Soon it was over.
“I’ve just discovered a massive black
hole,” he announced, tearing himself
away from the telescope.
