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