covid days John S Green


social distance

learning to love

being alone Lynne Jambor


snowbound hospice—

on my phone I show mother

a photo of her garden Michael Dylan Welch


unmasked dogs

watching squirrels chase squirrels

in the back yard Victor Ortiz


crossing the street

a muffled hello

to my neighbor Susan Erickson


Halloween night
