PANDEMIC PUTTERINGS

Published January 1, 2021 by Nan Mykel

If still alive when the pandemic passes

Will anyone be willing to get off their…chairs?

The cloistered world of expanded mind

Fits, as time goes by.

Patches from old songs flitter

Among recycling litter “As Time Goes By.”

Jumping spider in the tub

Takes on significance, that’s the rub.

The phone sings its cradled song

As mail from good causes go unopened.

Poets need not rhyme; or not;

Nor dress. Time o’erflows with polka-dotted

nights, several times a day.

Outside, a passing motorcycle farts

and while I ply my art alone I find

that self-quarantine works for me

just fine.

      • Too long for reposting, but I especially like “Warmer furry love!” And
        “Literal Mechanical Robot Dogs Are Replacing God Dogs too In Flesh And
        Blood Way Yet You See Human’s Have Eaten The Face of Nature That
        Is Real God ”
        and “From This Twilight Zone New Reality SHoW iN T (TRuMP) OW N
        For You See Trump Symbol For The Pandemic Of Humanity Culling Itself
        Back As Our Clothes We Wear All The Tools Trump Swords”
