Considering What Comes Next

The envelope is sealed

laying lip-side up

The saliva of hope

was run across tomorrow’s face.

Then with a secret placed inside

for some certain someone

the wet side was pressed

down to safety

for future’s secure

delivery of message.

And when next hand meets this paper

the moisture will be gone

only the stiff, locked

unknown will look up

prepared to be opened.

And hope will switch from sender to recipient

considering what comes next.
