Hungry postbox

Salford, 15th March 2021 – from a writeclub prompt

A postbox is a box that eats socks

There’s a reason why they are red.

Just before night fall – the humans put the washing out

in the hope they’ll be dry in the morning

the crows cry out – but everyone’s asleep

as the poor old washing line find’s itself

accosted by the eater of socks

and right socks and left cry out for each other

as the holder of the mail

helps itself to a night time snack
