Proportionate Sleep

Molded fraternal
black holes weathering the great
void harness stillness
in the heart of the abyss.
Vast, unheard hiccups
swallow colossal swaths of

space-time cancelling
unstable sentience from
becoming its own demise…

(This is a Choka, and it stems from a group of Eastern forms of poetry called Waka. The syllable count is 5-7-5-7-5-7-…5-7-7).
