THIS-ABILITY

22TORTOISE2-master1050This-ability

I was told it was the length of stride,
Given all the numbers and their names—
But I assert the world has gotten slow,
My walk in perfect sync with current pace!
I can see all movement as a crawl,
And measure by my steps how fast I go.

 

This poem was originally published in the January 2015 Screech Owl (defunct as of July 2015).
