My latent superpowers, well, they're back: obliterate a marriage with my mind; bewitch the president, that lying sack of—Cody! Take it slow. In time I'll find
—please note, I'm speaking as my therapist—
the equilibrium that time affords.
I've also rerouted (I have a list)

My powers have increased a hundredfold
