The edge of the hole

See more of Lorenao Nanni's "Fragments" at www.lorenzonanni.com. (Image from here.)

And on the subject of holes, Kurt Tucholsky wrote about the philosophic sociology of the hole in 1931. Read the translation here.

"The most intriguing part of a hole is its edge. ... The edge of the hole guards the frontier of the material."

What happens when a hole is filled up, when the edge can hold it no longer?

I do love holes.
They can be like windows to let the light in, or they can be like wounds, to let the dark out.
