Denise Krebs

in these virus days
increased layers of litter
greet and expose us

Note from Denise about the poem: Day 18 – and Day 53 of the staying at home orders for me. I think it was about the time we started to all wear masks. Now it’s been over 200 days, and we’re still wearing and littering masks. It is a time of feeling exposed. The cases here are doubling and even close to tripling what they were earlier during the pandemic.
