Written by Sarra Culleno for the collection: 'Life in the time of #COVID'

"After my revolution, you might learn

to be free" said the world who's axis turned

grounds, skies and sea. Hadrian's Wall forgot

his enemy. London Bridge was left bereft of

feet to carry. There was no circus in

Piccadilly. At first, the oxygen

was not free; ventilated only for

bourgeoisie. True love was absence,

not intimacy.

All creatures, have need for

hibernating. At last, our own cubs we

are rearing. Cage bars, like origami fold

into art’s framing; three dimensions we

are gaining. Perspective, like overgrown

gardens clearing, and hereby,

overstuffed wardrobes

emptying, so apt rewards we will be

demanding for brave frontliners

duty serving. For redistribution we

are clapping. The revolution is beautifying.
