Like swimming, don't dig
by yourself. Make certain you start
in the same direction as your buddy.
Don't show off. It's not
how much dirt you lift,

but where you let it slip
off the shovel. Check for blisters.
Even when you're finished
digging for the day, keep
your shovel near:

In a moment of weakness, you
may need to share
an urgent secret:
the hole you almost fell into,
the whisper that lured you to its edge.
