Free Verse (1) – New Normal.


New Normal

Tested for Covid on Sunday, now
I am isolating for 3 days.
Not much change there then!
I have only been out when essential.
I am still afraid of getting Covid.

I have my monthly shop delivered,
Also my cat food in large quantities.
But yesterday I went up town,
For the first time in quite a long time.
I wore my mask and went by taxi.

I didn't like that people came too close.
Lots of others wore masks, lots didn't.
I know after Wednesday I will go out more.
I am having a matching eye operation,
On my left eye, then they will be the same.

With no difference between them,
I may start wearing make-up again.
As I gather my courage and try and live
A life approaching something like normal.
Well, a new normal, whatever that may be!
