In place
Freedom’s flight constrained
Bitter necessity
Becoming the prison cell
Lives lost, grief overlooked, tears fall,
The infection of fear continued
By the continued infection of fear
I sit behind a frozen window pane
Glass holding me apart from the world
Its sounds and smells too sanitised
Immersive experience
Subtracted from being
Starlight is calling
I remember
Hearts can dance
Not dead

  7. Not. Dead. Yet.

    That’s my favorite line in times of stress.

    You have it, Sue. I hate that you can’t get out more to travel around. It’s not fair!
