today
the universe has given
us
24 extra hours.

i can see you,
sitting
in front of the fireplace,
regret staining your hands
like sticky black
ink;

you always wanted 
just a few more hours
to go back
and make things right again—
but when the opportunity presents
itself,
you realize that no amount of time
can undo.
