Wave Lengths

Wave Lengths (Illustration) Poetry Ethics

You bought Christmas paper
So did I
Hundreds of choices
Scores of stores

We each chose
Two identical rolls
From the same shop
On the same day


Reflecting on the day's events
We tell
Each other
Our stories

Without discernible connection
Flashes of identical
On unrelated topics


Working separately
In the same place
Hours pass
Without interruption

At identical times
Without cue
We look
For each other

We communicate
On the same wave length

What a gift!
