Mailman Blues

Post Haste

‘If I'm reincarnated,
I'd like to be a snail’.
So spake the postman, as
He handed me my mail.
With a snail as a postman
The service might be better
And I don't think I'd mind
The odd slimy letter.

  1. Beautiful, beautiful. I'm head over heels for this one. You've captured it here, the romance of paper correspondence. I had a decades long affair with the mail. A weakness for stationery and cards, beautiful pens, stamps with perforated edges (the kind that needed licking), and even sealing wax. Good communication always gives a good high, but personal snail mail quickens the heart. Slime me!
