Brief Introduction to “A Letter to:”
While I do not contest to divine the epistolary style of Lucie Brock-Broido, I am enjoying reading her poetry. I am inspired, to presume a letter of my own:
Ponder not my love of Things. I have it. Spend your time discouraging me? I will still want. Sales make a difference, of course.
I know, 100% is not spent when 40% of what I have is spent. No matter the sale. Believe me sir(s), I have the code.
Spend not your time trying to fix me. The day will come when I will find the end of my money. Much as the Grasshopper greeted Winter after playing all the Spring, Summer and Fall long. Both the Grasshopper and I will get our come-uppance.
Ultimately your worries over money spent will cease.
I know not when I will stop pining away for that which I have not got.
