Letter Sealed in an Envelope

The most effective method
Of committing suicide
According to a website
I once read
Is to imagine a world
In which nothing else exists
Where children do not
Walk to school
And mothers move in an
Elegant procession of
Complete emptiness
While the ghostly voices of fathers
Echo off nothing
And the roads
Have forgotten cars, as well as
Where building sites resonate with
The void
And maybe the whine
Of a single hammer, vibrating
At a low frequency
Because it was once dropped
From a modest height
