Who Owns This Body

Is this the same body
I woke up in yesterday?
The week before?
The year?
Is this the same body
that plowed fields in the springtime,
studied in summer,
worked office in autumn,
and now, in the glories of winter,
goes to one long rest?
I wonder who was in this body
during the latest of nights,
I wonder who was steering
when all sense was gone –
I wonder,
Was this body ever mine
for more than a day?
