“Wednesday.” I mutter.
Like the drop echoing in a bathroom, the profane idea tie has past fails to process in my mind. My urge to twist the details leaves me transfixed.

“I’m sure I could change all of this.” my soliloquy causes a smirk.

I know when I go back in time, I’m a visitor. The updraft of hope leaves the taste of compunction. The poor fitting acquired taste like wabi sabi. Feelings enter the octagonal wrestling ring again.
