Blackbellied Cloud Tanka

Eighty-Fourth Entry, Coronavirus Poetry Diary
about the aftermath of overnight beach parties

the sun obscured
by a blackbellied cloud 
the lineup
for covid19 testing
grows longer and snakier

Note: The eighty-fourth entry is a sequel to the forty-first entry:

death toll rising
in California sunshine
thousands flock to beaches
