Relative Velocity
Who among us doesn’t know
the difference
between skiing fast
& slow?

At slow speeds we ski through space -
at high speeds through time -
but what of the mountain,
& what of the mountain?

We ski slowly fighting gravity -
ski fast fighting fear -
soon we must stop this fighting
& start skiing.

& who among us really know
how fast
or slow
they go?
