Pandemic Poem #27

Battelle Darby Creek bison pasture with N.H. 3.11

Started out

by sleeping in

First night of more than four hours

in seven days.

First night not punctured

by protestor’s fireworks

in five days.

First morning without a

get-up-for-school alarm

in one hundred and eighty two days.

First day of summer break

Zero trips planned for ninety days.

Does it matter?
