Dark matter is invisible and mostly intangible, with its presence only detectable via the gravitational pull it exerts. NASA online
Black holes confirm the invisible out there.
Is anyone prepared for encounters with nothing?
Our atoms in another form, a far-flung part of what used to be
a floating world.
A different gravity that drags in everything passing by:
our cosmos even. Ourselves for dinner?
Us, our evolution, the nature of things,
learned for nothing. For learning’s sake?
And the magic trickster nowhere to be seen!
One day like this, jerked in. Intangible. No feeling.
