I Need to Write a Letter



I Need to Write a Letter

I need to write a letter,
on paper
crisp, rough and folded
Something you touch; it takes time to open it

It has weight
Beyond the envelope
Beyond the paper.
Crisp, rough, unfolded

Now

You read it one word, then another
They pile on each other
A cairn but living
Like the heart of the one writing

Carving words from stone
Crumpled, rough
folded again
in your purse
in your hands
Like the heart of the one writing

I need to write a letter.
To you.


David M. Birdsey 2014
