The Reel World

If I could,
I would rewind my life.

I would go back through all
the plot twists and turns

if only to be able to relive
that one beautiful moment:

The single scene to ensure your name
in the credits

even if I knew
in God’s cutting room

the outcome of the film
wouldn’t rely on its existence

at all.
