Written by Joe Russo for the collection: 'Life in the time of #COVID'
and I started talking to the wall
To pass the time.
The books in the bookcase all
Yell “Read me…READ ME”
But how can I read all of you?
The dust packages together
The covers they fade.
Will someone talk to me?
Outside the world slows to a stop.
The bikers, the walkers, all with
Smiles on their faces. For what?
The world is ending go back inside.
“It’s a PANDEMIC”
PAN-DEM-IC. She says it like its
This season’s Chanel.
What are you wearing?
Maybe I’ll brace Target.
Open the doors.
Let the bloodshed begin.
