White could have just moved 1.Kd2#, no?

Why can't I move Kd2 from the beginning?

Black is going down the board.  Hopefully this clarifies things.

The puzzle in the previous post, containing the same theme as today's daily puzzle, I saw posted by EndgameStudier https://www.chess.com/members/view/EndgameStudier (formerly EndgameStudy) on page 118 of the "Daily Puzzle Submissions! *Be Involved*" forum: https://www.chess.com/forum/view/more-puzzles/daily-puzzle-submissions-be-involved.

Because I was familiar with the theme already I was able to solve today's puzzle right away.

Why is Black playing to get checkmate soon? Why not ... Kf1 - also lost, but not so fast.

Its Because the king gets a check on f-file and then mate...
