the power of rewind

the other day my son was wishing for the rewind button that would unhappen the source of his unhappiness i remember being fifteen and praying in desperation to a god i knew was not there for that very button that would make yesterday into today so that tomorrow would not kill me this was not like the wish to fly a wistful speculation this was urgent and overwhelming like a drowning man's lunging for a scrap of free air somehow i survived having mostly learned not to get myself in situations that will need rewinding these days i still wish for the magic button though not to erase mistakes made yesterday but to plan a tomorrow spectacular and wrong followed by a finger flick and i emerge as mild mannered me who would never do something like that.
