Before And After

Artemio has always surmised
that something, yes, something

must escape a black hole,
at least, water vapor,

because water always
finds its way,

almost as if it has GPS,
it’s never lost,

put a space boulder in its way
and it will turn it into sand,

sure, here on earth there is troublesome time,
but out there, no such thing has ever existed.

What astrophysicists do not realize is that
mathematics is an imperfect science,
otherwise there would only be whole
numbers, and if every time one did the math,
there would be no remainders.
