A long-term associat calls
inquires about my welfare.
talks generally, concludes
he dialed me by mistake
Another one messages,
before I could begin reading
deletes them, I heard
his answer ” I did it by mistake.”
My gate creaks, a burly man
wishes me, before I could reciprocate
He cries ” Oh”,is that you?
I came by mistake.”
Finally, the postman drops a letter
in the box, returns a little later,
pulls it out in a hurry, remarks
* I slipped the envelope by mistake”
