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?


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
