On Duty

 On Duty

All who sleep at the same hour share

This cannot be true

All who swim in a lake
share a memory of the cool water

When I yawn it makes you yawn
and the cat yawn

Have you seen mail that you had sent
return to you
Your own writing telling a letter to go to someone else
and a mistake boomeranging it back

If we can clock out
it is due to the belief that someone capable is on duty

and we drift
and settle onto the land
