Rewinded

A lifetime away I am
A small child on a white couch
Careful not to spill
The juice relegated to the kitchen
Zone.

Rewinding
The VCR movie in the box
Wavy ocean lines reversing on screen
Motion            sick.
Back in            time.

He eats and
You breathe the air of his hurt
He will crunch, chew, chastise
Smiling make a steak of you.

You’ll be ready with dinner soon
Babe.

I will watch and
I will watch and
I will watch and                  wonder
How anyone could agree
to be
wife.
