automated mess

i love imagery
for instance,
i love to imagine that some cheery person
is still sitting behind a switchboard
plugging me in to the person i just dialed
or
that some hard working people still
stand behind the scenes at the post office
and sort our mail by hand
carefully sorting mail into little cubbies...

so imagine my surprise
when i got to the mailbox the other day
and found this little gem...


not the holiday greeting from far away that i imagined
but one mangled mess right from our own nest!
surely not sorted lovingly by hand
but instead some cold, creaking machine's lunch!
what i love is the stamp
informing me of an incomplete address
that's the least of it!

and if i knew who the recipient was,
by all means i would send them another
but i do not
so here's hoping they got at least the other half of the card!

P.S. wait for it...i am one post away from 100!

Oh - that's so sad. A missing Christmas letter of all things.
