  • it used to be send was send
    you dropped the letter in the slot and it was gone
    no turning back

    the email click to send had just such a final note
    and no amount of muttering,
    no wail
    no hand applied to head,
    no ooops, oh hell, or shee-ite amal militia
    could bring it back

    the appeals were laughable
    it was sent in error you say?
    I'll see about that.
    Pandora's box
    how old a story is that?

    Today, like so many things, there's an app
    and rather than practising an innocent face
    rather than repenting in my leisure
    i got me a 10 second window
    the un-send
    the redemption app
