accelerating

i am

A C C E L E R A T I N G

and the world
is a blur of motion
moving ever faster
before my eyes
like the foreground’s scenery
as i look out a train window
forcing me to stare
further into the distance
where things slow down
and come into focus

i cannot hear you
your words are stretched
and doppler fade into nothing
but i can see you still

i am

A C C E L E R A T I N G

as if i am leaving orbit
and heading toward
perspective’s pinprick zero point
while all the stars stretch before me
and i sit back in awe
to enjoy the ride
