Lexington Poetry Month
Celestial Bodies
article by
Jessica Swafford

When the stars are loud, 
there is no black sunshine –
only a black hole
that devours a star
and belches fire. 

(This poem arose from a combination of three things: a line from Misty Skaggs’s June 4th poem,  Jude McPherson’s pseudonym, and an article about black holes.)
