All in our Zoom windows. Heads,
bookshelves, the tops of plants.
Most of us looking down, harsh
lighting, ceiling vents. Waiting...

The little succulent

in its aubergine dish.

            The nurses. 

The children at home...

But did you know this:

Behind the walls of the chrysalis,

The complete digesting of oneself into utter goo. 

Only a few cells get saved. And so,

I realized this on the ninth day: 

I cannot intellectualize my way out of this.

I must feel out every step with all my being...

Keep moving 

Find a way 

Try harder 

Build 

Drag

Pull

Lift 

Breathe?

Is it possible to write a poem 

during a pandemic and not

It seemed that

We emptied the skies

and the forsythia cups

Deformed by spring winds

bent shy and...

which star am i in the big dark universe?

 

there was a time when i was afraid to be seen

when it was not safe to shine

...With many of us caught on opposing sides

The bricks rising ever higher 

With no dismantling any time soon

Mayhap the internet will serve as carrier pigeon 

Conveying my love to the other side
