Dear Brother

I hope you are well

but since we'veย ย fallen out
I have no way of knowing

as well as
whether you mind these letters

however

these letters

are the power cord I'm trying
to unravel and some day
with a lot of fumbling

I'll find a socket I canย connect it to

because brother
you see and I really hope you do

I'm trying to give a lonely lamp
some companionship
and further light the room

signed

with the warmest light
I can find

your brother
