ways in which you ensure the package does not arrive
and it seems strange, how we used to wait for letters to arrive. but what's stranger still, is how something so small can keep you alive
pretend your mattress is the door to a blue mailbox. sleep on your letter.
place your letter in the garbage. wave goodbye as it heads to the dump.
draft an email. make it real good, spell check. disconnect the internet. power off.
find a person. make them a friend. big friend. move away. mail them a letter. no return address.
forget it. but know your love is known. sent. or not.
crumple it up. it is now a ball. bounce bounce.
dig a hole, bury it.
climb a tree, nail it to the top real good, admire the view.
just leave it in your hands.
