tell me about my relationship to the sender,
tell me, please, about whether or not:
this venture will succeed;
this missive is legitimate;
this email will be the one that’s worth
all the checking,
all the wondering,
all the hypothetical
conjecturing, nail-biting, ruminating,
and staring into my morning cereal.
oh, internet gods, incline your ears!
rend the heavens and come into my inbox!
work a miracle therein,
or else do nothing for long enough
that i finally get the picture
and stop obsessing.
