It was a blazing hot moon 
when the doorbell rang. 

It was a delivery guy 
dropping off a yellow square post-it note 
from my long dead mother. 

The note said: 
I am not the villain you portray me as.

I turned the post-it over and scribbled: 
Not at this address,
then handed back it back to the delivery guy.
