Prestamped – by Cari Carpenter

What may not be mailed to prison.

Prestamped

Another thing
I cannot say–
squelched before
it makes the page.
My travels–
literal or otherwise–
across Time
Space
Imagination
And if I censor
so much
Have I said
anything
at all?
So many things
I cannot send–
Stamps
Address labels
Postcards–
What are they
Afraid
I’ll send?
a piece, prestamped,
of Humanity?
