Hooded Patch Pocket Sweater
Taking It Slow.
Half a mile to the mailbox.
Far enough, this time of year, for a cozy sweater. Far enough to collect a few bright sugar maple leaves and tuck them into your pocket. Far enough to watch the geese lift from the north pasture, settle into a V and bank toward warmer places.
The mail isn’t what it used to be, of course. You’ve gone paperless for bills. Warned off the junk-mail senders. All that’s left are invitations, thank-you notes, a catalogue or two. Here and there, a handwritten letter. Like today. Sloping script. Beaconsfield postmark.
You slip it into the pocket opposite the leaves, to read later.
Half a mile back.
What’s the rush?
