my doormat without a sunday paper on it.
my very kind paper man
told me to just text him if i was ever missing a paper
he would drive over to deliver it
i love the sunday paper and especially the crossword
love throwing open my door on a sunday morning
the paper patiently waiting for me on my door mat
love opening it
with a fresh cup of steaming coffee
and diving in
the day came
when it wasn’t there
i sent a gentle text to my paper man
saying there was no sunday paper waiting for me today
he very quickly responded to say –
that is because today is saturday.
ah, i thought.
