poem147: I wrote a letter…

I wrote a letter

and went to the post

the fella didn’t take it

said it was blank to the core

I asked for a pen

and looked for a spot

but couldn’t manage anything

more than a blot

took it back to the post

and he laughed at the dot

so long you took

and that’s all you got?

I told him it was the moon

in a pale white sky

no words could express that

why did he laugh, why?

he took the letter in a jiffy

sealed it with a kiss

‘express delivery’

he signed underneath
