It was waiting for me in my inbox.


“Unfortunately, I cannot obtain electronic copies of the Ocean, Warehouse or EPLI policy.

Here is the Package and Umbrella,

and a copy of the most recent schedule.


JAYNA Westbrook,”


The punctuation, capitalization, and line breaks

Are reproduced exactly as I found them

The italicized words

Were hyperlinks,

Paths I dared not follow,

Gateways to destruction.


I know these words are faux corporate-speak

But the random images

Distinguished with capitals

Deserve a moment before my eyes.

(Apparently my spam-assassin concurred.)


There truly was a comma after the surname

Leaving me hanging
