Send the Package

Why do you not just send the package?
The package
is metaphor
and I scream in the vacuum of its Gaze.

Tiny cantaloupe footsteps
tap their way across
my inner post office
which longs for the package
you have not sent
the package
you have not sent
the package
you have not

Where is the package?
Where is my heart?
Is it in the package?
Is it the tape you used to seal the package shut?
Is it the brown paper in which you wrapped the package?
Is it the stamp?
Is there a stamp?
A lot of people don’t use stamps any more.
What if my heart is the stamp
and there is no stamp on the package?

Agony
is a package
with no stamp on it
that is never sent
probably because postal fees
are far too high these days.
