dear katie bouman:
everyone i know has space fever.
they’re circulating that picture we wouldn’t have without you –
sending it to each other on group chat
uploading it on their social media
buying newspapers with it on the front page
pretty marvellous that
you can use science to prove these things exist
everywhere, even in places
we couldn’t see them before.
would you call a black hole a miracle or a disaster?
black holes are cool, like
burning a hole right through the ace of hearts
or dropping a cigarette through a car
