Hour 9: Fretful Nights

 

The fretful night ushers

morning lethargy which hangs strangeĀ 

and heavy in this otherworldly reality

where the masks we wear bring us togetherĀ 

and tear us apart

Over a Zoom we share a bottle of hope across screens

dream tomorrow when children catch firefliesĀ 

in the summer heat
