Quantum Theory – a villanelle

black hole

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When we’re swallowed by a singularity —

so reach our end, and maybe start again —

and time goes on, or not, as case may be,

 

it’s all just quantum waves, impossible to see.

Such gloom to feel purpose is in vain

when we’re swallowed by a singularity!

 

The belief in world’s particularity

is just our ego shielding us from pain,

and time goes on, or not, as case may be.

 

We, as observers, make reality

from ripples, fleeting things that won’t remain

when we’re swallowed by a singularity.

 

We are told a vacuum’s packed with energy.

The truth of this is hard to ascertain —

and time goes on, or not, as case may be.

 

A lightbulb’s vacuum could destroy a galaxy,

a notion that might come to seem quite sane

 

when we’re swallowed by a singularity

and time goes on, or not, as case may be
