Lockdown poem

Life’s been soft sharpness

rolling with the hours

they run fast sometimes making it hard

to catch up and sometimes they move

slow like snails I can feel the seconds tick away

watch the crawling of night

out of the last ray of daylight

time is playing two songs on repeat

I know all the words by now

trying to make up my own even though

they are already written and I’m already singing

along to the same old songs

over and over

I ask you the same question

but still

you haven’t been able to offer me

a different answer

let me know when you do

then I’ll sing you two songs

ask you a question you’ve heard before
