A Room of My Own: Just Another Weekend

One Hundred Sixteenth Entry, Coronavirus Poetry Diary 

me, my dog
and shifting shadows crowded
in this small room ...
on TV the doctors warn
the virus favors gatherings
the premier yells,
get their brains scanned ...
behind the news
coronavirus turns
Added: One Hundred Seventeenth Entry
morning chill
stay at home for the nation
scrawled on her window

  1. The following two diary entries work well as a sequel to the tanka set, "Just Another Weekend:"

    One Hundred Fifth Entry:

    a cluster of cases
    linked to a house party ...
    the glow of my iPad
    at the tail-end
    of a sleepless night

    One Hundred Sixth Entry:

    one shot
    after another ...
    at the bottom
    of this bottle, a door
    to my pre-Covid past
