Writing in the time of covid-19

There are ghosts

bouncing on our lockdown trampoline,

untroubled by social norms

or overhanging branches.

Welcome to my home office,

I am making amulets,

in virtual meetings,

looking up my own nose.

 

Good morning, blackbird,

you are wise today,

perched on the tweezers,

predicting snowfall.

 

I am gazing steadfastly

over the reservoir.

I am following the Canadian airforce system.

 

Crying  Noli me tangere, Reiki master!

for this is not love but orgami.
