A Letter Turns Into a Ghost

It's terrible when the post office turns against you. Nothing you can do but assemble a robot pit bull to chase the mail deliverer around. You'll congratulate yourself for the shreds of blue uniform on your lawn. You'll always be brought to the front of the line by nervous postal clerks. You'll be whispered about in rooms filled with Christmas packages and boxes of sex toys. Your metal beast will turn against you someday. It will realize that no one was going to send you a letter anyway. You pretend to have friends but those are only mannequins, dressed the way you like. This letter that will never come will turn into a ghost and haunt you. It will cause the robot's circuits to misfire. To chomp you and chew off your legs.
