Love in the Time of COVID-19

Paulette A. Ramsay

masks
my mask
their masks
our masks
multi-coloured
red
pink
black, green and gold

hug less hugs
hollow eyes
squashed eyes
half faces
half a face

idle make up bags
complain of neglect
lips dreaming of lipstick

love in the time of COVID-19
food,
their food
our food
more food

love in the time of COVID-19
a soundless movie
a soundless whimper . . .
