prompt # 9

In the days of corona,

quarantining at your cottage as far as Barcelona

to small quaint towns of Arizona or Sedona.

wherever you are

a good time for some cornmeal porridge

able to keep your stomach storage

full. Since shelter in place,

may make it easier to embrace

and schmooze or snooze.

So if you ever leave your chateau.

as you check off keys, ID, money

make sure you include masks

to do those essential tasks.

Outside in the summer heat,

wearing your mask, you can’t walk a beat

without stopping to quench your thirst

with a water bottle.

Once you have nursed

yourself from feeling lethargic.

Time to head home and take in a zoom call

as you relax with  tea and above all

sleep until a new day cometh.
