the myth of dying suns

When very old and very warm, the wizened sun will walk to the edge of space, where hungry black holes await,and wet his blazing toes on the deepest pool in all of the milky way.

The black holes will sing a song of death, a hymn of doom to descend silence on all fears of dying slowly and forgotten.

You’ve lived well
and you’ve lived long,
though now forsaken you’ve spent your time on the shores of Venus, comforting Mars, the Earth will thank you without the need of a shrine.

The sun sleeps.
