Doing Things Right

                                       ...un excelente disgusto, creo

                                       (Carlos Martínez Rivas)

To cut costs
wars should be fought
in cemeteries.

To cut costs
as a prelude soldiers and civilians
should dig their own graves.

To cut costs
the whole world should be
privatized (every inch) as a burial ground.

Here is the shovel.
Get digging and to cut costs
throw yourselves in.

(E. A. Costa  25 September 2013)

Ad Tam Grande Secretum....

There are several different ways
to contrive more space in the same time.

Lengthen stride.

Accelerate pace.

Lengthen stride and accelerate pace

The last is one possible definition
of simultaneity.

[from "The Book of Walking", E. A. Costa 8 September 2013]
