Event Horizon

It tok this crippled old man

right until the final days of his own horizon

sitting there in his wheelchair

grinning teeth and eyes at us

to discover something that we all

intuitively knew:

information doesn’t necessarily get lost

in a black hole


We knew it. In the background Alfred Brendel

is playing Mozart’s Alla Turka, Freddie Mercury is singing
Don’t Stop Me Now, and Richard Burton is quoting

Hamlet’s soliloquy “To Be or Not to Be”


So don’t lose heart friends as we approach our own Black Holes


Grab your pecils. your notebooks, compose your songs,

your symphonies, your soliloqies!


You’re not alone. Tomorrow exists in places that even Stephen

did not dare to dream of


Beyond the event horizon are crowds of children waiting

to read your words, listen to your music
