Speed, the rider of modernity

Reflection of efficiency, utility, productivity

Creates as well as closes the gaps

Rejuvenates as well as kills in exuberance

Does speed liberate or enslave

Brings people closer or creates deep distances

What will happen to the moments of idleness

Isn’t speed relative as are distance and time

What will happen to those

Who want to see butterflies in slow motion

Should one forget the difference

Between ‘barely registering’ and ‘actually seeing’

Should one loose the ability of enduring

“the long shot, the slow dissolve, the sustained monologue”

Amidst plenty should one miss subtlety
