Alone (pandemia)

Alternating between the stock market ticker 

that I only monitor hoping for the scumbag’s demise 

and editing my book that I both love and despise 

I look out the window to see my neighbor wearing a t shirt that simply says “alone” 

a chord resonates deep inside and momentarily I share that loneliness 

it isn’t until he turns in my direction to let his dog pee that I see 

the shirt says “aloha” 

the mind plays tricks 6 months in

people are heroic

people suck

my contempt grows

alternately buoyed by kindness
