To Be An Envelope


To be an envelope,
contain an ethereal message,
purple connotations,
cinquains linked, metonymes
like red leaves piled
by silk thread narration's
slanting script.

Ever so slightly intriguing imperfection
in the ink sunk to papyrus inside.

An ideal illusion of seal.
A destination,
destined to be torn.

But now a strange container,
paper thin wall enigma.
Shielding hope and hunger
side by side, letter by letter.

Sealed with a kiss, with a prayer;
Godspeed, dear Hermes.
Be my wings, speak for me,
watch those eyes follow
where I can't see.

To be a promise,
a courier on archaic wings, a song
between four eyes
and one pen glowing.
