At the mailbox

No,
this is outrageous,
this is not allowed.
Today was already good:
now unnaturally so.

Immediately I am suspicious
of what the coming day might hold.
Surely there exists
some spirit charged with distributing happiness evenly,
who is now waiting to smite me on the morrow
for the crime of receiving
three
letters
in one day.

I open two;
the third can succor me tomorrow.

This is fantastic, cuileann! You really described the feeling that people get when they receive a lot of mail really well.
