2018 Sonnet 16

Hawking’s Robo-Voice radioed to space
Where it hits a black hole. How sweet. No, what?
The price of sending not him to no place.
A black hole? Super-nothing, is it not?

Hawking’s Robo-Voice transmitted from Spain
Out to 1A O six twenty O O.
Thirty-Five Hundred light years plain
The best known black hole by a few specks below.

Ashes scattered twixt Darwin and Newton.
“Here lies what was mortal of Stephen Hawking”.
Mortal was all of what Hawking knew on
This earth, where he said mortal’s the only thing.

Spirit may hover or soar. That will be
Stephen Hawking’s next great discovery.
