Adhesive Valentine by Bill Knott

I found this poem this morning, and I dedicate it to those, like me, who haven’t yet found their true Valentine yet. He/she must be coming soon, right?

ADHESIVE VALENTINE

not knowing where you are

not knowing who

so I’ll coat with glue

all the envelopes I mail

 

where most words fail

mine will still pursue

kept in these veils of gaze

every postal maze

 

no matter how far

no matter how overdue

they will find the true

 

letter bound for you

and there be pressed

adherent to its address
