Black Hole Sun

I know something new
about the universe
which has nothing to do with stars.
There is a light unknowable
unless you are traveling
at the speed of darkness
toward a slow motion mouth
consuming all your gravity—
all your weightless mass.
And this discovery will never be
documented in the science journals
and there will be no one
to praise or congratulate you
after you’ve fallen back to earth
in possession of a beauty
so blinding, so completely yours—
that you can never share it.
