Figure E16 ACCRETION
Ascend: to see the monster at the heart,
Devourer of suns, a DARKLING STAR.
Although it seem that it must be the part
Of every mass to fall into this scar
Upon the void, geometry shall bar
Its passage, as the needle’s narrow eye
Will scarce admit the camel. It is far
More straitened, a pinpoint against a sky.
So, crowded at the gate, the fierce emissions sigh.
