Lockdown Lifted Tanka

Fortieth Entry, Coronavirus Poetry Diary, written in response to Pawning During A Pandemic

lockdown lifted ...
a lineup stretches
10 blocks
from EZ Pawn
in the morning chill

death toll rising
in California sunshine
thousands flock to beaches

Note: This tanka is a sequel to the 33rd entry:

with their cars 
blocking ambulances 
from reaching the hospital
