On Furnishing A Black Hole (In Two Parts)

I don't want any
hippie (bleep) in my cozy
lil black hole abode.

Give me bourbon or
give me death. Even in a
black hole, girl needs booze.

Swallow the drink down,
if you will, but a black hole
is no place to die.

Too much Black Label
And one's soul becomes blue. Just
be happy with sips.

It's hard to find joy
while living in a black hole.
Too much gravity*.

* first and second definition of "gravity".

It seems we can now
turn from Haiku poetry
to Allegories!

the concern is allergies-
not allegories.

I think "To and Fro"

is more likely "Ebb and Flow".

Love/Hate...the fine line.

The lines dividing
love and hate are finely drawn,
yet easily bleed.

heart that is broken, than to
have a heartless soul.

Is it having a conscience?

one know its' meaning
