Theory of Relativity

by Trish Cozart

A theory based in fact
about people we love
about relativity —
how we interact.

A physicist knows
of space — length and time
the faster we move
the more it grows.

Time creates a moraine
we’ll miss even more
the distance now longer
the embrace — a strain.

We plant roots deep into land
yet speed like light, then wait
to see kindred strangers
we misunderstand.

The faster we remain
distance grows, time extends
but there is something
that doesn’t gain.
