A Letter From Home

Leap, and the net will appear.

John Burroughs


Dear Lazarus

I hope this letter finds you in good health,
High spirits, as well as in mindful breath.

It has been way too long since last we spoke,
saw you smile, or even heard a fun joke
part from between the dark walls of your lips.
So I'm writing to tell you of some news
i think might be of some concern to you.

I'm telling you, because i always knew--
Even though perhaps you didn't have a clue--
that you were head over heels, deep in love
with the cute girl, from the house next door's crew.
It turns out, she recently got engaged
To that boy that always got you enraged.

I wrote this to inform you, and not break
your spirit so that you feel way too weak
to write back during the course of the week.
Please do. I'd very much like to see you speak.

Lots of Love
Aunt T
