Just Another Weekend

One Hundred Sixteenth Entry, Coronavirus Poetry Diary 

me, my dog
and shifting shadows crowded
in this small room ...
on TV the doctors warn
the virus favors gatherings
the premier yells,
get their brains scanned ...
behind the news
coronavirus turns

Added: One Hundred Seventeenth Entry
morning chill
stay at home for the nation
scrawled on her window
