"If this comes creased and creased again and soiled
as if I'd opened it a thousand times
to see if what I'd written here was right,
it's all because I looked for you too long
to put it in your pocket. Midnight says
the little gifts of loneliness come wrapped
by nervous fingers. What I wanted this
to say was that I want to be so close
that when you find it, it is warm from me."
- "Pocket Poem" by Ted Kooser

Alright, my friends, there are a few instructions you'll need to follow if we're going to get along:
1. Write a letter you wish you could give to someone but probably never will
2. The person can be alive, dead, someone you know, someone you don't, mythical, whatever
3. Preference will be given to poetry but short paragraphs are okay too. I don't want a book. No book.
4. Do not recycle a write that almost fits the prompt. If you have a letter you've already written, that's great! But if you get lazy and just submit a random piece of writing, that will not a happy Beka make.


A nifty virtual award!
