mailbox

(3/26/00)

_________First Place__________


hesitating
at the mailbox
she kisses the stamp

hilary tann

  
 ________Second Place________


morning glories
claim the mailbox —
I let them stay

its scent filling
the empty mailbox

perfect abandon
wrapped around a mailbox post
wild morning glories

in the mailbox
a fistful of promises for me
