Gravity stretches

time-space around a b l a c k h o l e .

Bob still thinks he’s fine.

Alice could do nothing to dissuade Bob
he was dead-set on his insanity
only in part because it was his job
and he held professional vanity.

He didn't care about the fame, she knew
and in her ears, his parting words thundered:
"... the dream I've always wanted to pursue ...
ever since I was a kid I wondered."

The naked singularity was found
This quest had been his lifetime devotion,
and he was "gravitationally" bound.
She could but stay and watch in slow motion.

Portent of his spaghettifying squeeze,
she saw his craft begin to fade and freeze.
