Pushing The Envelope

Envelope addressed to Aline B. Louchheim by her husband, Eero Saarinen
Museum of the City of New York
I don’t miss sweeping my tongue across the back of an envelope
I don’t miss standing in line at the post office
I don’t miss looking up a zip code
I don’t miss having mail returned
I do miss choosing a stamp or stamps
I do miss writing with a fountain pen
I do miss choosing print or script
I do miss adding some kind of embellishment to the envelope
