April 7, 2014 – On attending a lecture by a Nobel-prize winning astrophysicist, Pt. 3

At our center
is a dying star:
an empty space –
a black hole.

It once emitted light
to all inside its orbit;
but now it only absorbs,
and robs, and depletes –

And yet it still
has force and grace
to bend us at its will –
and hold us all – together.
