The Cost of Velocity


Wind is all around

Thanks to a machine

I’ll take it

Because sometimes if

We’re lucky, this

Is what we get


Maybe a mountain top would improve


But like organic food, so-called

The fashion of the moment

Trips and climbs can’t be


Time and money

Abrogated in favor of, you know,

Food (of any kind)

With the need to stay in place
