A girl named, sincerely

I used to know a girl named, Sincerely.

When she moved away,

I tried to write her a letter to

express all the things in my heart.

It was a very short letter.

It began,

Dear Sincerely,


P.S. Once again, I have run out of room.


Then, at the bottom of the letter,

I added a bunch of X’s and O’s.

Telling her,

this is what Tic Tac Toe looks like

untethered by

the number sign.


If lost in the woods,

leave a trail of bread crumbs

for the birds to eat. It couldn’t hurt, and

besides, it might help, later, to

have some friends on the inside.
