There’s a point in the ocean
where depth and pressure
are more than a hull can take.
All that water, bearing down,
crushing.

The darkness
     condenses,
     consumes,
     conceals.

There’s a point in the sun
where depth and pressure
are more than an atom can take.
All that mass, bearing down,
crushing.

The light
     condenses,
     creates,
     celebrates.
