A Coronavirus Poem: Two People


I saw two people
today, standing
almost together

and then, there was
the sound
and everyone
looked up
and spread out;

I could see it
in her eyes,
she just wanted
to be closer;
I was a coward,
I couldn’t do it.

We stand
looking at each other
from so far away now;
and I wish
I hadn’t been
so brash in my
assessment; to
push her away
like that.
