My sister hands me an envelope with anxious trepidation, reading off the return address as she does so, “Global Zoe Industries. The World, Our Solar System. Pour Zoe.”
Excited and even a bit scared I open it.
No white powder explodes in my face. Instead an attractive and apparently reused piece of fancy green monotone paper appears.
I unfold the paper and a message is revealed on the blank white side.
How awesome is that?
Thank you. Whoever you are.
I love you too.
Full text of message:
if today has been the greatest day,
I hope it changes, never.
& I hope this note finds and suits you well
and makes your day a little better.
Although this dead ‘leaf’ cannot see you or me,
there really is no mystery
why it is I made the effort to tame some words
to show you love and a sense of community.
