Social Isolation: Day 13

In a funny way
            I’ve never been more social.
People call all day or text or send
            short videos.
That’s how I know
            to give my produce
bubble baths, and why I know
            to leave my mail to languish
on the porch.
            That’s how I learn
New Yorkers are not welcome
Today I watch a doctor
            (hollow-eyed, they all are)
explain 19 is just a virus
            that our body doesn’t know.
Our bodies, though, adapt to change
            and, somehow, I think New Yorkers
will get by.
