Black Hole Friday

Some day I'll step off
And fall--
Free fall in darkness
No faith
No parachute
With only the bare skin on my back
The same as when I came into this world
Falling
Like down an elevator shaft
Except surrounded by 360 degrees
Of infinity.

Plunging down,
Down,
Down,
and
Down.
I can see
No white light.

How far?
How long?
Answers that can't even be measured
In light years
Or in Plancks of time.
It's not like I can turn around
and ever come back.
All I can do and keep looking down
And ask myself
What difference did I make?
