Revising the Law of Distance

The 10,000 miles that we used to bridge
In a day’s flight now belongs to the past
Once we’d thought that it was impossible
For the world to stop, but look outside now
Everything’s at a standstill, suspended
Only season with its own law moves on
While we’re trapped in this cage of disbelief
If only the blink of an eye had weight
And I could decrease the world’s entropy 
I would return to that curtain of time
Before this novel decade dawned on us
When I could have stopped the flight of birds 
Then distance would have been only social
And not the lightyears that divide us now
