i think of Prudence. how she flashes her teeth. how she weaves words like a basket. her beauty. her baritone voice – my phone rings, it’s another message from Quora digest, it reads; what is a black hole?
// a black hole is a space/volumes of space where gravity is extreme enough to prevent the escape of even the fastest-moving object. not even light can break free //
my crush is a black hole. i can’t escape or break free from.
anytime my kid sis asks for a painting of a beautiful lady. i will paint my crush. I will write a poem attached. not just a poem, but one that would mold a heart into shapes of love.
a mourning sound found its way into my airpods. it’s the voice of my neighbor. she’s praying. how can i send my request across? through signals? or morse codes?
another message again. it’s my crush. the black hole swallowing me.

Dear young writers,
When you're reading something you like written by someone who is not you, please, please do not copy out lines if your intention is to use them in your own writing. That's how you get into trouble. It's plagiarism.
