In Memory of a Great Love Letter


NaPoWriMo Day 17
Our prompt for the day asks you to move backwards in time away from such modern contrivances as podcasts. Today, I challenge you to write a poem that features forgotten technology. Maybe it’s a VCR, or a rotary phone. A cassette player or even a radio. If you’re looking for a potential example, check out this poem by Adam Clay, which takes its central metaphor from something that used to stoke fear in the hearts of kids typing term papers, or just trying to play a game of Oregon Trail.

For today I am writing about what used to be the greatest tool of expression of love, before emails and smart phones were born.


In Memory of a Great Love Letter

your handwriting may not at all be easy to read
but you write with great measures and  surprises instead
yours was always, almost a perfect Hallmark Valentine’s card
