Time Machine

Found in the want adds

Nineteen forty-two:

“Time Machine, used.

One owner from new.

This could be you!”


The moment I left

the present was past;

The past, my future,

before me at last;

The die was cast.


If only I knew

what I know today,

I would never have

left the world that way.

I’d have to stay.


But then…

Who knows where the

world would have been

if we knew now,

as they knew then,

the fate of men.


I stole the device

from myself in the end,

and feeling remorse,

returned it again

to what should’ve been.
