Covid, pants and barriers to communication

Scroll down to content

I met an old man last week,

his pants

were

poking out of his pyjama

bottoms.

 

They were the same as mine

M&S

blue stars;

 

I was going to tell him

and everyone else

in the room about our shared underwear

but,

the facemask

and the goggles,

gown and gloves

Got in the way.

 

In another time

In another world

he and I

Might have found that funny.

 

Not now.
