in movies there are arcs

made by the speed of the car
made by the motion of the frames
made by the man who says

this is how it shall be
this is how it is
this is how it fits

within the time
for the arc

in real life
there’s just
this sort of rolling

not majestic
clumsy and

as if it

and the action of a timepiece
with first impact

and the rolling
when gravity is wearied

and the man
30 seconds later

and there is no
fast forward
or script

to tell you where
this fits
within any of the many arcs

only that the frames
will seem             to               be               moving
much                 slower                 for                 a                 while
