Like when you tried

Like when you tried
To recover a letter
From a letter box

Your whole being
Was in trepidation
And concentrated
On retrieving the letter
That revealed your heart
To another

And posting your fingers
Through the door
You felt stuck there

As the recipient
Stared in amazement
At your tiny fingers
With the painted nails
Doing a puppet dance
And wondered
Should he applaud
The impromptu performance
Of guilty pinkies
And goofy fingers
As they retrieved
The letter at last
And ran for it

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
