The Addressee



The letters the way you go by selecting,
The bulkiest in dictionary in the beginning.

If ironical selection you do,
The last letter of the alphabet is number two.

The last letter of you,
Is the next on queue.

The fourth coincidence with alphabet arrangement,
As in the beginning of development.

The next and the second,
They do correspond.

In a dictionary, the next is after the first one,
If you are there, all must have been done.
