14 | Black Hole Big Top by Scott Hvidsten

A black hole big top
came through town peddling Schwarzschild

Professor Stephen
yelled as a sideshow barker
hawking radiation

on a circled stage
lit by the luminescent
hot particle jets

we saw quantum twins
spring forth from a void with such
immense gravitas

it vanished before
our eyes in holographic
