to gather or not

to gather or not
to gather, that is the question
in the context of

the ongoing pandemic,
we are torn, loose in the wind

almost twenty-four

almost twenty-four
moons since we last stepped into
this neighborhood gem –

names are foggy, but the flavors
will never quite escape us

there will come a time

there will come a time
when we will be separated
by a pandemic

says no one ever, shouting in
a crowded karaoke bar

the new year begins

the new year begins
to look like the year before
and the year before

that – even the guests in our
backyard appear to lose the scent

yesterday’s winter

yesterday’s winter
solstice slipped passed nobody
and everybody –

another wave of cases
capturing our attention

the city becomes

the city becomes
unrecognizable after
one or two years in

a global pandemic, a
new skyline raised in shadows

against all odds, we’ve

against all odds, we’ve
arrived at the end of a
twenty-one month year,

a brand new calendar for
our unreal realities

five days from home and

no, we will never

no, we will never
recover the summer of

autumn drags us kicking and
screaming into winter, a blur

it is looking more and

it is looking more and
more likely that
we have been weighing
the wrong things, counting
and measuring
that which is
not easily
quantifiable, things we
can’t wrap our heads
around. we have
disassociated, splintered,
fractured ourselves for
too long to contain
so much, we can’t
be reliable data
within these set
values, even words
are no longer
enough, nor
meaningful
