Let’s stop the chitchat
about this and that;
we have all just moved
– our Earth may need protection.
It turns out that we’ve been
relocated in space
without our consent.
Our next door neighbor’s now
a supermassive black hole (Sagittarius A)
4 million times the mass of our sun.
– Should we get ready for descent?
From the poetry collection We Are Stardust: the universe in verse by Bill Chatfield
