“You are such a slowch!”

I looked at Vega,

and Vega looked at me;

she didn’t know the word,


“It’s a shortening of ‘slowcoach”,

I informed her,

“And not that far removed from ‘sloth’,

just like you.”


By this time, Vega ‘had’ moved – not very far,

and not very quickly –

from a position of indifference

to one of couldn’tcarelessedness.
