Dark Energy

like a universe which has sprung a leak,
i swiftly densify with the inwardly creeping
of goblins. the sinking seems safe—like a
kite, free of lightning, or a canoe,
saved from icebergs by the even more
rockier riverbed.

these most-damning demons do not torment
(not much), they dull instead,
gentler than the death of fish
floating in matterless weight,
not fiery nor drunken, but dryly vacant,
filled with hollowness, hollowly filling themselves
(lonely cannibals) in progressively occupied,
dimly diminishing breadth: the goblins,
killing life, themselves die.
