epigramme: I wish we could tell sol

save our star, save us all
nothing is free
in fact
as soon as we get what we want
it costs more and more

I recently heard about a star
that accidentally went into another star's space
bumped into it briefly
and was pushed slightly off its own course
right into the mouth of a black hole
where it was stretched so thin
and so instantly
its soul never had a chance to scream
swirled for a moment
and became just another part of the fat mass belly of that rip in space
and only now
do we have the lenses
                                  to see this

I wish we could tell sol
