Stamps are Expensive

I have written

“home”
into the center of envelopes,
and shipped them across
the Pacific ocean

Perhaps
I should stop leaving
a return address

because they
always end up
here, Washington.

Maybe
I’m sending letters to a place
that doesn’t exist
or maybe
they’re arriving

exactly where
they should be.
