Copperplate Print

Just two words:
‘I’m alive,’ arrived by courier.
It was a print, from a copperplate,
money was spent,                                                                                                           getting this message to me.

Delivered indifferently,
aloofly signed for,
immediately the creator
of the copperplate print
was known to me.

Nostalgia of that great perhaps
swam through my veins
molecules sang, ‘thank God!’
Quickly quashed by the order
of memories pre-dating
the copperplate print.
