by Gorry, Godfrey Mutiso
...Unmasked –
The spirits' face is a black hole
Swallowing the celestial beauty
Of the stars.

Caged –
The sentinel is crouched
Subsumed in seething pain
Not pain but anger of being guiltless
Yet ‘guilty’ for being in jail.

The cell –
No crime equals its greasy grey walls
Thickly dark with no grills for light
Till the eyes, sore, feel pain no more.

The sentinel –
Was once a brothe...Read more of this...

...ack dark.
A tree coils in core of darkness.
My swinging
Incise the night.
A man slips into a doorway,
Black hole in blackness, and drowns there.
A second man passing traces
The diagram of his steps
On invisible pavement. Rain
Draws black parallel threads
Through the hollow of air....Read more of this...

by Webb, Charles Justice drop her scales, yank off

Her blindfold, stand revealed--a monster-god
With spidery arms and a mouth like a black hole--
While I leap, ant-sized, at her feet, blinded
By tears, raging blindly as, sense by sense, 
My mother is sucked away?...Read more of this...

by Trumbull, John
...Now Night came down, and rose full soon
That patroness of rogues, the Moon;
Beneath whose kind protecting ray,
Wolves, brute and human, prowl for prey.
The honest world all snored in chorus,
While owls and ghosts and thieves and Tories,
Whom erst the mid-day sun had awed,
Crept from their lurking holes abroad.

On cautious hinges, slow and stiller...Read more of this...

by Giovanni, Nikki this feeling   to return to earth     It is not tragic    I will spiral   through that Black hole   losing skin limbs   internal organs   searing   my naked soul    Landing   in the next galaxy   with only my essence   embracing myself   as    I dream of you    ...Read more of this...

by Lawrence, D. H.
...easing his shoulders, and entered farther,
A sort of horror, a sort of protest against his withdrawing into that horrid black hole,
Deliberately going into the blackness, and slowly drawing himself after,
Overcame me now his back was turned.

I looked round, I put down my pitcher,
I picked up a clumsy log
And threw it at the water-trough with a clatter.

I think it did not hit him,
But suddenly that part of him that was left behind convulsed in undignified haste.

by Stojanovic, Dejan leaves of galaxies eating the light 
Becoming the angel of life and the bearer of light. 

I imagined I was a black hole 
Flying through myself and swallowing myself 
While eating others to consume the abyss of energy 
But still, holding the whole galaxy in order 
Keeping billions of stars circling around me. 

I imagined I was God for a millisecond 
And became speechless for a long time.

by Lowell, Amy
...holy offering. The lacquer stand had stains
Ugly and charred all over, and where the golden pear
Had been, a deep, black hole gaped miserably. His dear
Treasures were puffs of ashes; only the stones were there,
Winking in the brightness.

The clock upon the stair
Struck five, and in the kitchen someone shook a grate.
The Boy began to dress, for it was getting late....Read more of this...
