Reset Button

by Alena

Peel the lid back.
You could hear the faint sigh 
released from something 
that has been sealed for too long.
Look inside.
Everything seems in place.
But nothing is moving.
Something should have stirred upon opening.
I reach in and poke, prode, mash and shove.
I blink twice and then I am able to write.
