2020 Quarantined in Utah

 2020 Quarantined in Utah


5.7 Earthquake trumps COVID 19

Can’t leave can’t stay in a daze

Coarsely aloft in her unbridled Dressing-gown

She wakes as Cock-Crow clambers out of her Sleeping-bag

Malaise snot-green beer bottles fall broken

Magna’s copper mine with Pittsburgh perfume Devil’s Snow cloud

The maze of dark turning alabaster white

She crept, she slid, she hurtled as she hides from the quake

Human shells crucified skirts, her only swag

Sabastian and she went to cat under door-ways

Candle stick in wine bottle, ghost light soft

They gamble a traverse to cross, the cross-walk at dark.
