I missed yesterday and I posted a blog post instead of a poem the day before, so I’ll try to write two today and two tomorrow to catch up. Here’s one.


a moment of silence

for everyone who received

their weekly screen time

on their phones today

who haven’t showered

for several days because

time means nothing now

for those who have worn

the same bra for a week

or have stopped exercising

when they were only just

getting into the habit of it

before this all happened

those who have run out

of Netflix shows to watch

and people who were not

meant to be homebodies

but stayed inside anyway

doing their part for others

in these uncertain times
