Putting a letter in a post box

The envelope
drops on to the endless pile.
My fingers wave to the names
lying in wait to hear happy birthday,
happy new year, how are you?,
we should meet up soon, please reply,
where have you been?, are you OK?,
this is your final warning,
congratulations on the birth of your baby.
