A Poem by Jane Markonic

A poem for the ages
Hide away from the contagious
This shit is outrageous
Do you even know what day it is?

Quarantine feels like a dream
Time passes by faster than it seems
Where is our ray of hope? Just one small gleam?

Will things go back to normal?
The dress code is far from formal

Wright Lane – by Joshua Morse

More than you need.
More than you Use.

When I Wrote On the Road – by Griffin Cooper

cardboard boxes.
I’ll listen […]
