Shelter in place



feeling alone

being alone

when “we are all

in this together”

bends my mind’s credibility

oxymoron of the times

touch me with your words

let me feel your heart

yes, the fears in the dark solitary night

and yes, your hope which will not yield

let us touch the newly-opened tulip

as we dare not our best friend

and watch old reruns of

crowded classrooms

busy offices

roaring arenas

picnics in the park

and love-making

without masks

so that we may not forget
