In the Time of Virus

Series of poems exchanged between poets via e-mail

seven haiku


social contagion of fear

time to sit, listen

toilet paper rolls

the currency of worry

in select-a-size

as roman hellos

elbow around in the world

six-foot masked man waits

tv teaching us

world geography of loss

tally of denial

cardinal singing

sweetly on the outstretched wing

of double parked plane

daffodil joy left

in pickle jar on back step

brings smile and deep sigh

my zen friend, ruben

ringing transformation bells

whom will they wake up?

- J. T. Knoll
