Road Re-Traveled

Into the mirror of hindsight
I squinted toward the past
rapidly edited my errata
squeaky cleaned my life
to reflect memoir bright
...returned to the present
laughed out loud
even with the handy mirror
I didn’t get it precisely right.

the past is like the written word,, so easily edited to provide the most bang for the buck... this was lovely....

I like this, 'the mirror of hindsight' what a thought.

I've just found this wonderful poem. As someone with a reasonable store of hindsight, I loved the idea of looking 'into the mirror of hindsight', editing errata and a 'squeaky cleaned' life.
