Terminal Velocity - an art work by T Newfields


A Near-Death Reflection

Speed increasing
to .97 maximal velocity.
Time and space expanding.
Frame of reference
approaching zero singularity.

Heartbeat slowing.
Brainwave activity out of range.
Metabolic rate marginal.
Neuro-electrical activity
reaching a flat state.

Condition appears terminal.
Decoupling energy manifolds.
Matter containment systems failing
life support on hold.
Ron: (chuckling) This dude is terminal!
Lex: Aren't we all?
Ron: Hey! Lighten up!
Linda: (nodding) Yeah. Who wants to be reminded of their demise?
