The Moment You Take A Snapshot It Is Out Of Date #12

And then something happens and he decides to
stay up all night, to ride it all the way through
til the morning. But
the night takes it as a challenge, and
slows itself right down,
steels itself to go on forever –
or what seems like forever –
as if it is a staring contest.
Like each day is a piece of string,
like each day is not just the earth rotating
rotating rotating away.
