Our lives in brackets
On hold (…)
with an unknown caller rejigging destinations
manipulating life – lives.
Ah … buts, so dangly
(on the high-wire)
that second guessing
the space ahead
is as teasing as the vaccine to coax
What status between
(which has gone by the time you read to here),
or next Thursday, next year
or Wenursday if you can’t remember;
(who does lately?).
And what of the unknown normal?
(If ever there becomes a normal
we recognise as normal).
Would a next phase unmask another wave
to be turned
on its globules and
can we close the brackets?
