Today is yesterday
relived in routine in my usual home space,
meals becoming the only change of pace
with choices limited to groceries ordered and delivered
in my grocery bag was a jar of pickled beet slivers
maybe they were the last can on an unstocked shelf,
because I did not order them myself.
As I did yesterday, today I got out of bed
I haven’t decided what lies ahead
with choices limited for my time today
to reading, writing, walking, or talking on my cell
calling friends and family, sharing their time, they tell
of classes or meetings on Zoom and books they are reading
games played online, which don’t require speaking.
How long will this lifestyle last
for sure I can tell you, it isn’t a blast.
