NPM 2021 - Found Poem 25

Today's found poem comes from the New York Times article What Do You Call a Bunch of Black Holes: A Crush? A Scream? written by Dennis Overbye.

Black Holes

enigmatic entity
buzzing around a
cluster of stars
monstrous concentrations of
streaming gas and energy
across space 
at nearly the speed of light
  black holes work
  violent magic

will everything wash down
the central vortex
flashing spectacularly bright?
  last blasts of light
  in the cosmos
  all vanishing in a
  darkening silent storm

  1. I find sometimes articles written for general public consumption to be a tad overwritten as the reporter dumbs things down or else doesn't quite understand the science enough themselves - but this worked out really well for your poem. Lots of big words and flashing adjectives. I like.
