It may not be good but it’s here

Package

At the post office
the tellers are in back.
I can hear them wrestling
with bags of mail.
I ring the bell on the counter
and one shouts she’ll be
right there.  She hustles
to the counter, weighs my envelope
and says, “That’ll be $1.05.”
I normally pay 62 cents
and mention this.
She says the envelope’s a bit tall.
It’s the same one I always use.
I say nothing more
and pay,
pretending it’s innuendo.
