LETTER

he put a little letter and marked it with her name - and it did wonders for her blood circulation.
it made her so happy - that the entire concept of letters, which she forever treated with a great deal of comic levity , came back to her , and haunted her for her former disdain. it was not just a letter - it was a letter, marked for her, by him .- she reasoned, smiling - it was almost like everything inside her body became crescent shaped , such was the extent of that smile.

the letter - was him , and the letter was her - it featured in all their letters to each other - for it was letters and words that kept them together.
words they were good at - in this alien land, where spoken words meant everything, it was those many lettered words he had mastered - and she was blessed , by the intermediary knowledge that she posessed to be able to appreciate them. for they were so beautiful , so different in this world of noises and harsh pitches.


it all goes back to that letter - that he wrote and marked for her - that was where it started , where the written web was spun , and where they both were parked like the endpoints of a giant crescent shaped smile - a smile that extended from him to her :))))))
