Who am I? All blown open, paper fold
– An Envelope, by Jack Underwood 

::

And may have shifted as we go,
so please be careful looking skyward. 

We hold our breaths at paper moon 
and too-bright sun 
and similar exposure. 

See, 
it’s not the flap 
that gets you, it’s the closure. 

::

Maybe the fog will have lifted
by then and time will not seem to pass 
like small bones being broken in order.
– An Envelope, by Jack Underwood 

Quickly, day 23. Late to the party on a travel day.

    It’s always the closure, isn’t it. Nicely done.
