Social Isolation: Day 8

Our governor
   is out-governing
everyone—daily briefings,
robust plans. Today
            he spoke at length
on love
            of all things.
A bossy man
now exhausted,
     his voice
hides tears
            and many of us listening
tear up a little, too.
            I Heart NY
the old bumper sticker ran
   and I remember
why, of all the places
            I have been
and could have chosen,
            I set my heart down here.
