Sagittarius A*

at my will

binged on stars
gas giants

so famished for infinities
that I could swallow galaxies

and hunger in this nothingness
devouring all I must possess

in this event horizon where
not even light escapes my snare.

I'm "supermassive"
born to feed!

The universe
I'll supercede!
