A Perfect Stillness

There is a perfect
stillness to these stories. 

The first instance of a 
gravitational wave. 

Anyways, is there an
event that has a bigger 
explosion of gravitational
waves than two black holes

Can three or more black holes
collide at once? 

Would that be the sound of God,
a ripple in Time – a wave of gravity
that only humans can hear?

The sound of God is a window.
Born still in the windowsill, traveling,
still. Still seen by human instruments.
