The Change

When you say normal                you think about                         the past

& the things you depended upon        & the things that stayed the same

then you              learned that change         was the only thing    that you

could depend upon            you learned that you could resist        or  you

could let go               & be thankful         when       isolation arrived again

you had to adjust     to change           alone in your room       you worked

the new norm                  people said when you met                 on ZOOM

some said the weather was never this hot         or smoky &       they said

they were scared                         & again                      you recalled what

it used to be like         & thought             this is a new life            move on

be the change       make art        read        write       make  love       adapt
