return to sender

thank you elvis for words so encouraging
that we can hardly believe
that you or tupac are actually deceased
how long will we mourn for dear dear john
who is forever associated with breaking promises
and never met closure on a two way street
eyes close with thoughts of the letter
with bad intentions
filled with jacketed hollow point shaped words
with a sketched finger pointed at the reader
four pointed at the writer
victim unclear
addressed to the has been at their lowest
has been is their prowess
explain how this this this
21st century is is is
a horror trilogy of love lost in a self-centered universe
claimed by many
exchanged by plenty
exchanged for selfie sticks
but never included in the pic
sure of the return address
thank you elvis for words so encouraging
that we can hardly believe
that you or tupac are actually deceased
but dear dear john has equal popularity
yet mismanages the responsibility
his dirty work is now electronic
and the world is worse for it.
