The dog wasn't barking loud enough. Tail in a knot. Just a little bit of time machine to get us back. To where we started.

Then. If. Never. More.

Sad people. Arguing with capricious raindrops. Screaming in the thunder. Naked next to the lightning. Bad Cinderella poisoning her prince's kiss. Just one more dial. Another chance. To prove to myself I was a lie.

I slept so long, but never had the dream. The ladder at her window. The fire in her bed. As she pressed the button to send them back. No Einstein. No math. Just empty hands. And squeaking stairs.

To calculate.

The rip in her dress.

All the things that are small enough to change us.
