Ski Writing

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?
