The black hole slowly eating each
  galaxy from its center may be birthing a new

		universe elsewhere—infinite
				density here could create Big Bangs

						across the wormhole. The woman insists

		upon the shadow meanings of I need time
  alone every day, while the man pleads

				for the literal. Apology becomes armistice.
		Physicists see only the black holes’

  distortion of other bodies. They say

		singularity and mean
				I don’t understand.
