Social Isolation: Day 15

I devote this day of practical jokes
             to calling unemployment.
A student once told me
            that on April first
in his country, they put fish
            down each other’s shirts.
Outside, the sky is turquoise,
            the sun strong.
Inside, I have listened
            (2343 times)
to a man say
            We’re sorry.
We are experiencing an extremely
            high volume…
A short
            break to feel
the fish in my heart
            head upstream to spawn.
