THE BOX

Assignment: Poem
Subject: A Box

Quandary: With or without contents

He wrote to her
but his correspondence
was incomplete
simply leaving a space
where a letter should be
his words still had shape
the whole, some sort of form

His letters
making their way
from the in-tray
eventually rested in
increasingly less breakable code
in the bottom drawer of her desk
in a small cardboard box
