Dear Me,
I do believe
you should find this letter
between volumes of
Harry Potter books
on a dark and rainy
Sunday.

There are many things
I feel I could tell you
that might make your world
a little easier.

But in doing so
you would lose
the spontaneity of life
The sudden, sharp
pain
of losing a friend, or
joy felt on that 4th of July
spent with him
even if it was
fleeting

…There is one thing
I’ll let you know.
In the spelling bee
(you’ll win this time
instead of getting second place)
if you spell
hexapod
with an A
not an O

Good Luck,
Rebecca
