Duel in slow time

[ by Charles Cameron — cross-posted from Zenpundit ]

In slomo –

as in the slow rotating
backseat of a hurtling flipping car –

at that most divine of speeds at which
concentration arrives and
all is revealed –

as when Krishna himself bears
each arrow loosed from his
left-handed archer Arjuna’s drawn bow
to some fine warrior’s

doom

we see: all contest is
cooperation,
each edged duel, a true duet…
