Relative deflection of starlight


not gravity but rippling time-space keeps us here, spinning a blue path through sparkling stars, like Black Cat fireworks lighting infinity with millennia-old shock fire, nothingness stretches thin, coils tightly and returns, its speed relative, meaningless in the expanse of space marked by clock face hands spinning, the expanse of time marked by echoes of ancient beginning



The title for this piece (and the inspiration) was pulled from this article about the 100th anniversary of Einstein’s theory of relativity.

  1. I read it fast at first, breathless, then went back and slowed down to savor. I love the fireworks image and the nothingness stretching thin.
