To the Letter

To the Letter

Sometimes a sign comes
and it is 
difficult to ignore

being a veritable synthesis
of what 
happens to be on
your mind at
the time–

A letter?
A handwritten letter!

written to me,
my name 
pressed in ink 
letterforms, far from 
uniform
(the sender’s name? Illegible.)

Oh, the prospect!
enveloped in

Heavy white wove? 
No, 

Creased cream laid? 
No,

All business, it was
long and lean 

with space enough for 
a single sheet 

of lined loose leaf!
college-ruled;  
back in those days we 
wrote extra-long  
notes slipped between 
classes…

And???

She was writing to tell me
about God,

so no wonder
she knew my name 
and address 

and everything else I 
had been contemplating
regarding
the pleasures of
writing and receiving

a letter.

Handwritten?
Now that took the cake 
straight from my 
typing fingers; hard-working 
appendages! still do
consider themselves 
an integral part
of the whole

in relaying 
the hope that you 
too,

are soon presented
with an equally
inexplicable 

highly coincidental

veritable synthesis 
of what happens to be 
on your mind at 
this time

re: your Project.

O thank you guide!

Now follow the signs!
