Time Travel

If I could go back into my own history

and see those sorry jerks again
who mocked me for my diet
my exercise
my trying to do right

when I had null esteem
the kind of mind that kept me hours ahead of
a note and a bottle of aspirin

I would show them photos from now
and health reports
I would rub their noses in my physique
in my energy
and I know

this is why the gods don’t allow time travel
