130. The postman always rings twice

3 0 0

As mail carriers are go-betweens and messengers, they may bring good or bad messages and carry missives of hope or notes of despair, dispatching words of love or tidings of desolation.

Mail carriers have a fabled radiance.

They may have the statue of irresistible lady-killers and women may have secret liaisons with them if they are the few men they can see in the flesh.

Grass widows are privileged targets for mail carriers and time, and location often plays, then, an auspicious role.

At times, they might not even avoid running off with their precious booty if the claims of a burning temperament are not to be halted.

Mail carriers have a legendary aura: a ring at the doorbell may inflame a sense of expectation, suspense, secrecy, hazard or even intrigue. Ringing twice may imply a warning that trouble is on the way or an appeal to make the coast clear. Not all mailmen, though, will ring twice and await an eye-catching Lana Turner, whom they can whisper: "With my brains and your looks, we could go places" .

Viewing the postman from an unusual perspective adds to an awareness of eeriness.
