The package came with string
lacing together its sentiment.
Loosened by a wish,
a remembrance too late
tumbling from the inside out,
letters altering verity.
An apology.
As if they could take flight
and make the world
right again.

Today’s poem was inspired from a prompt on Every Day Poems and Tweetspeak Poetry. The picture is by Shelley Kommer.
