Return To Sender

written by: Ricky Hawthorne



It arrived unexpectedly

The packaging torn, frayed at the corners

From over-handling

The knot loose,

The legend faded, almost illegible

And yet, somehow, it found its way back

I took it in, dexterously

Placing it delicately on my old armchair

And finished the unwrapping

That had begun a lifetime ago
