post card from afar

the postcard
is from afar.
an island you've never heard
of.
it's from someone
you don't know, or haven't
met,
quite yet.
wish you were here,
it says.
with love and kisses.
the smudge of red
lipstick is on
the back. it smells
of perfume.
on the front are coconut
trees, sand,
and a cove of blue water.
it's nice to get things
in the mail
even if it's not
for you.
