Unopened Letters

This simple and elegant piece
It sits on my desk
It was a gift from my father
I don’t use it every day, but when I do, I think of him
Suck a simple gift of metal and chrome
I don’t remember why, but I wanted one so badly
It made me feel like an adult
I know it gives me a reason to look forward to things
Things unseen, but by time
Every man should have one, some style or another
It’s just me and my letter opener
