the letter

i have a letter
it’s twenty five years old
it carries your dna
your hand touched the paper
your saliva remains
mixed with the glue
that holds the flap
sealed tight
i tore it at the top
too impatient to open it cleanly
i had to know right away
i had to see what your pen
had to say
all the words
the words i’d longed to hear
and you meant them
they were real
i know they were
because i can still see them
i can still read you
how can they be untrue
if i still have the letter?
