Letter to an Old Envelope

Letter to an Old Envelope

The emptiness you carry now
says more to me than words you once held

whatever it was long gone
not the message but the fact it was held

is why I held on to you
you carried those words across the decades

to where I would finally understand them
and now even empty you carry the name

of what became of what I wasn’t ready for

    Amazing, Jeff.

    “you carried those words across the decades

    to where I would finally understand them
    and now even empty you carry the name

    of what became of what I wasn’t ready for”

    This cadence is brilliant.
