How do you cross that line
I want to compare it to
crossing the event horizon
of a black hole.
You might not notice as you cross
but you are on your inevitable way
to that intense and singular point
And no information
can return to the outside world
to let anyone know how it finally happened.
On the other hand,
I want to put romance
into a high-powered particle accelerator
and smash it to it's elemental bits
So we can make lists
that say things like,
"romance always has at least 130 billion quarks."
Then we won't have to
ponder the mystery any longer.
Instead, if things aren't happening,
You can study the lists
"more quarks, my friend, more quarks!"
