Why Did the Black Hole Swallow the Apple?

Heaven send us violations
Of causality—we need them.

One or the other has to go,
Causality or gravity,

And tempting as it is, I won’t
Risk a bet against gravity.

I am made of many defects
In the structure of the vacuum,

A creation that my body
And my language have in common,

But space-time yawns and stretches, bored.
It’s unrenormalizable,

And I’m an unreconstructed
Malcontent caught by gravity.

Screw it. Let causality fail.
Why? Why is the check in the mail.
