7 - Time Slows

Time slows ...

Time slows down..

To a trickle..

Soft and lovely..

It drips from a pipe….

Where is the source

Of this pipe?

How plentiful is this source ?

Shan’t worry now..

Why waste

The precious source..

By Worrying ...

About it?

Trickle.. Trickle..

Tickle with joy..

Enjoy..

Hello UPS truck..

What is on that

Sheet of paper

you are so intently reading

With squinting eyes…

Mr. UPS man… ???[1]

Delivering or picking up..??

The latter most likely..

Indeed..

What a large box that is…

not too heavy though…

You hold it by the sides…

Bulky box it is..

Toss it in the back

Of the truck…

Time slows ..

Time slows down..

Cicadas scream back at the jigsaw until it fades away..

Goodbye jigsaw..

Goodbye split board..

You will not be missed.

17th century..

#I can only imagine!!

#Only wish!!

Beautiful slower pace..

Placid..

Glacial..

Let’s be idle gentry..

Writing long letters to each other in our heads…

Let’s inscribe them

Quills in hands…

Long lush languid letters

Flush with florid prose..

Marvelous missives

Delightful dispatches..

Eloquent epistles…

# Please stop me![2]

Visceral letters

Heart-pounding

Breathless..

Expansive

Discursive..

Let it all hang out

And fall upon the page

Drip by drip

Drop by drop

Bleed every last bit

Of sentiment until

Exhaustion..

Ahh..

Such luxuriant exhaustion…

Our hearts in love

and

one

with our surroundings..

No one takes the time

To do that anymore..

Rush!! Rush!!

Text!

Text!!

How r u??

C U later..

CUNAbit!

OMW!

Bastard western civilization!

They say we are

Orwellian..

Huxleyian..

It’s worse..

See Zamyatin.[3]

Slow…

I slow down…

don’t let the passing car disturb your reverie…

It seems to tread carefully…

Strange..

Lovely.

indeed this pace

Indeed this peace..[4]
