    Poem included in “Proud to Be: Writing by American Warriors” anthology series by Joseph Carvalko

    REGISTERED LETTER

    Emotions spill
    Sympathy
    Endless
    Hope—,

    Expectancy
    Can’t cope
    With death,
    But all harden

    In the footnote1
    Of the end
    Of hope
    Of the hope

    Shrouded
    and stilled
    in the unexpected
    envelope.

    1. “Since your son, Private First Class…
    infantry, was reported missing in action on…
    Department of the Army has entertained the hope…
    Full consideration has been given to all information…
    Accordingly, a finding of death has been recorded under law.”
