It’s all up in the air,
setting the places on an already cluttered chess board
and there’s no time to
let’s try it again,
how many times can a game
be taken back to the last save
the mirror was kept so highly polished
the hairline cracks until
a bright tartan dustpan collects it
and glues it back together.
Not seamlessly: the past happened,
it wasn’t reversed.
But now the mirror reflects exactly,
as it always yearned to.
