How to See a Black Hole or Bouquet of Alstroemeria

.
As dust swirls around the black hole
matter compresses causing it to glow.
Scientists can only see the outline of the black hole, also called its shadow.”

.

circling a shadow the stuff of something
gleams incandescent around the outline
of a vase upon a table, a blossom-cache
that tantalizes every eye that’s able

these shades of brilliant burgundy
are shapes of shadows cast
these shade of brilliant burgundy
are each of stuff that lasts.
