The Postage on Life After Death

by on March 18, 2022 :: 0 comments

Reading a dead man’s letters
doesn’t tell you how to live forever,
but proves someone cared
enough to keep them for publication,
and that he had some friends
who are or will be licked
in an envelope by death,
while the cost of stamps rises,
causing complaints from those
with nothing to send,
as they allow paperless words
to fill empty air,
leaving behind no evidence
they ever were.

editors note:

It’s postage paid or the dead letter pile, no matter what the letter says. – mh clay
