No return address, the envelope was plain. The card was simple. A nice picture of Earth graced the front, probably taken from one of the satellites in orbit. Inside, the handwriting was familiar:
'English assignment. Emily Dickinson. You are probably the only person who might need this poem, literally. –The Other Jack
"I lost a world the other day.
Has anybody found?
You'll know it by the row of stars
Around its forehead bound.
A rich man might not notice it;
Yet to my frugal eye
Of more esteem than ducats.
Oh, find it, sir, for me!"'
Colonel Jack laughed.
