Day 36

Poems During a Pandemic

As a companion to Today’s Poems Today, I’m starting a limited series, Poems During a Pandemic, where you will find the poems I have written since April 1 (day 16 of my sheltering in place). Each evening I’ll post a previously unshared poem working backward in time, one-poem-a-day, until we get back to April 1, when this series will end. The poem below is from yesterday.

Day 36
My mind’s a dry well
No new insights, no great plans
Just me and the day
