Silent Letter

Silent Letter

I like to hear the letters hit the pile when I post them.
Yours didn't make a sound. Intercepted mid-air.
Whisked away to a steaming jug and a big black pencil.
HB, censoring me.
Dear         ,
I'm                but                do.
            can't             back
            Have                                                    ?
I have. Let me                      can. Please
sweet            . Because nothing
                     Find enclosed
We                                                    face,
                  Yours            x    x
PS: Please          in my            .
