Flag Up

by Shannon P. Laws

 

I forget to put on a coat
as I walk out across the yard
letter in hand

The address will never change
it’s written in my sleep

I’ll place it in its tin house
By eleven tomorrow it will
join the others from the route

My question is on the single sheet inside
I dot all the “i”s with a heart thinking it might help

Many games played in the dark
Many toys left on the lawn
