sense vs cents vs sent

the uspo
pulled a fast one
upping the rate
to forty-four
on me
while my attention
was elsewhere
i have colorful
favorite forty-threes
by the sheet
their one cent flags
will always
be absent..
my two letters sent
during this
change
might not
have made it
to their destinations
i hope they
send me
a two-cent bill
instead of destroying
a perfectly
good
conversation
or two

as exercise or exorcism, i write...for the eyes of others, for my eyes and heart only, for the love and the rage, i write...to release the gamut of emotion...to tell the truth and say what's often thought but not written...
