A Didactic Effort To Mail A Letter


Buy ink which remains indelible on the soul

Lick your stamps as they should never lick themselves

Keep envelopes open to suggestions and to be stretched

Hide them in a dry place or pine desk out of trouble

Hold pens gently into the wind or corresponding weather

Leave an impression on the world as you write

Use an eraser but only after midnight


Employ an umbrella over your story

Deploy it in the rain if you compose

Protect your notes while rushing to the mail post

Kill trees only when necessary

Pray they don’t take revenge


Keep rain in buckets one drop at a time

Keep sanity at bay and asteroids at large

Stamp high as bays get wet in rising tides


Write letters with pens untouched by men

Utilize paper snow white and pretty


Mail correspondences twice if suspicious

Use two stamps because you can

Deliver yourself from evil

Let postmen know you are on to them

Send one letter at a time as mail is heavy

Give it time because time is burdensome

Let letters drop while servers do the rest

Wait for a response but don’t hold your breath
