Covid, pants and barriers to communication

I met an old man last week,

his pants


poking out of his pyjama



They were the same as mine


blue stars;


I was going to tell him

and everyone else

in the room about our shared underwear


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.
