sorry (acrobat shapeshifter time traveller superhero)

“saying sorry is a valuable social lubricant”

Why do we say ‘sorry’ so much? Simon Horobin

i wish i were an acrobat
shapeshifter
time traveller
superhero

i wish i could erase people’s minds
change the world
just like that

sorry but this is me instead
ungrammatical
paralyzed and anxious

prisoner of my own mind
and impending doom
always pining and yearning

i wish i was a throwback Superman
using the confessional
to change into someone better

not to leap tall buildings
but to save myself
from myself and the truth

i wish i were an acrobat
shapeshifter
time traveller
superhero
