Vast Problem Still Obscure Poem By Siri von Reis

Most of the mass of the universe
may be contained in dark matter.
No one knows what that may be.
Astronomers say we could be
dealing with planetary objects
unable to produce luminosity;
some believe we are looking
at black holes or other things
formed when stars are born or die.
(For physicists, the heart,
of dark matter lies in axions,
strings, magnetic monopoles.)
If related to stars, dark matter
presumably will be found where
stars are. If indeed exotic,
it won’t react with matter
as we know it nor, likely,
with itself; and surely
it will, in any case,
have nothing at all to do
with everyday matter.
