A girl named, sincerely

I used to know a girl

named, Sincerely.


When she moved away,

I realised how much I really

missed her, so I tried to

write her a letter to express

all the things that were in

my heart.


I failed at every attempt.


Each letter began,

“Dear Sincerely,



Alas, it seemed that once

again, I had run out of

room before I could say all

that I want to say to her.


So, at the bottom of the letter,

I added a bunch of X’s and O’s.


“This is what tic-tac-toe

looks like unbridled

by the number sign.”
