Rush

the metronome weight
pushed to the very bottom –
prestississimo

~~

for Haiku Horizons‘ “rush” prompt.

For those who are not familiar with a mechanical metronome, the lower on the stem the weight is pushed, the faster the metronome ticks. In music, prestississimo means that if your fingers are not flying off of your hands, you are not playing fast enough (not the literal definition of the word, but close enough)
