Acceleration 
by Steve Shelton

A distance from here
to there is where I am. 
Acceleration. 
Constraints and motion, 
and degrees of freedom
Time and gravity
bring the up... down. 

A different kind of waking
walking into a different kind of sleep. 
Here to there, and there again. 
And the next here is already gone. 
Free beams of density. Free dreams
where the center of percussion
and the sweet spot are the same
to amplify the false impressions, 
harmonic balance, constant speed
along a circular path, radial, 
towards the center of the circle. 

Constantly changing. 
Tangential, the respected points of ambiguity
lend them legitimacy, 
hung at the pivot point, 
where the center of oscillation
is the position of the mass, 
the high mass of a simple pendulum. 
Imagine a dream
suspended from a wire
so that it can move freely
as the wire disappears into
the axis of rotation, 
the center of the dream. 
And the mass is falling in curved spacetime
where things become more complicated
since there is no straight line. 
Curved manifolds. 
Motion and gravity breathe geodesic dreams, 
a relative acceleration, and
the distance from here to there
is still where we are. 
Acceleration
