The State Of Affairs - A Magpie Tale

The State Of Affairs

I would have sent you
one more letter but I get
no replies from you.
My buddy Tom says
he sees you at the letter
box holding something
like you're sending up
a prayer all too often
but you back away.
He says he sees you
pocket whatever it is
and shuffle on home.

  1. And wouldn't you like to catch her, buy her a pint and finagle out of her exactly what it is she's afraid of posting? ;)

  2. Hoping one day she finds the courage…


  3. I rarely ever find out what my characters think unless they tell me outright. I have learned over decades that it is smart not to pry.

  4. During such a time...courage could be all spent....but hope can pull it out of her pocket eventually....a lovely write Christopher!


The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
