"damaged in handling"

on february, 9th, a letter is posted in the united states.

the letter never reaches its destination. someone does not receive her first ever valentine's card, but she knows about the mail-that-should-have-been. the words gone missing.

seven months later, a man breaks up with a woman.

on october 23rd, someone opens a mailbox in vienna. this is what she finds:

the envelope looks like it has been slit open deliberately. it is empty.

there is a poem in this somewhere. maybe some day. i can't write at the moment. :(

song of the day: norwegian wood (this bird has flown) by the beatles.

And you will write it. Because that's what you do, Michi. You are a writer. A poet.
