Hole Man. A poem.

Stand still long enough
Time slows to a stop
The event horizon
Of a gaping black hole
The world moves on
The traveller ages not
Until soon, all too soon
He’s accepted his lot

You know, theoretically, a man falling into a black hole would appear stuck on the event horizon as he approached the speed of light i.e. we wouldn’t see him actually fall in.

Imagine being frozen in time…
