your letter arrived today

your letter arrived today
my love.

i should tell you i have decided
to read all your letters in thirds,
every other day.

this way they should last me six
and on the seventh day, as they say,
i shall rest (thinking of you).

so, i write you now having only
read a third of what you had to say;
i must say i am pleased (today).

your stay, at the hotel by the bay
(a well deserved rest, if i may),
is the best remedy for what ails you.

the day after tomorrow, after i have
read the subsequent third of the way,
again, i shall write you

but for now the letter is back
in the envelope which you so lovingly
sealed (with lips i adore) yesterday.

there it shall stay
until monday my love,
until monday.

your letter arrived today
