microscopic reversibility

there is a principle of
microscopic reversibility
a theoretical detangling
of proteins that could
allow man to unboil an egg
reverting a solid into
its original state

send me backwards
to a protozoan form
back before the sunlight
shone down with such
degrading malevolence
break me down into my
basic components and
let me drift off the cliff
into the gelatinous lake
of the primordial ooze

before gills
before lungs
before the ache
of existence
weighed so heavily
down upon
my ruined shoulders

send me back
to when the words
had no meaning
just sounds
warbled through
an amniotic sac
