Today's poem is by Michael Teig

under one box another box

I head off like an inventory
                like a kindergarten
under one box is a pie
                the sky too is a box
                                into which
we turn to each other
                take stock

maybe the sky accidentally
                knocks over a box
so that a new person spills out
and gets included
