Words for today are: basking, crumbs, tongue, maybe, lifetime, last, luminous, original, mix, pretend, cicatrix, proprioception (definitions at end)
I am soft, no longer resilient
Basking. My country safe. Protected by law; manners.
A luminous lifetime playing pretend
I presumed to be unmarked by cicatrix.
Proprioception in play, surefooted in the world
Into the mix came pandemic.
My sense of the original, became the maybe
Freedoms cut; tongue licking for crumbs.
At last, I dreamed to once again travel
One more year; I look to the horizon.
I’ve been kept safe. My country strong
Courage departed, I’m now the fainthearted.
Visions of hell coalesce
Dream of travel, less and less
Psyche doomed, coward looms.
No joie de vie is left to me.
