Dystopian Reality

An old couple back bathing

wrapped up in many layers

but exposing their bare backs.

A pair of drying underwear

clipped, tied on rope on a

hanger with wire on a line.

Scents of home cooked food

emanating from windows

surrounding this rooftop.

A 40-year-old English teacher

escaping quarantine temporarily

landing outside in the sunlight.

Gaining Vitamin D from rays

vomiting my heart via my fingers

typing all of this onto my laptop.

This is what freedom is now.
