This will be the last letter she’ll write
is what it says in the opening sentence.
She has more free time in the summer
and thought of how she’d sit down and
take a moment to write some letters on
stationery, it’s been in the bottom of her
closet for a decade now in an old shoe box.
It’s the pretty little cards with kittens in
baskets and soft pastel colored envelopes.
She bought her last sheet of Forever stamps
remembering what it was like to send a note
to a friend or loved one and how they felt
finding it when they opened their mailboxes.
The news said the Post Office is going broke
thanks to computers and cell phones they’ll
fade away like clothes pins, records, and tops.
