Inside Our Time: Morning by Claudia Stedelin Wilson

The female body awakens, and rises.  A quiet joy exists, as does a hopeful world.
A cool breeze outside the kitchen window is freckled with bird song.
If only this miracle of sunshine could wipe away the virus, and free this cocooned humanity.
It is my husband’s birthday.  As if not a care existed, I whip up his favorite: Buckwheat Pancakes.
As he pours his syrup atop the steaming crispy edged cakes (the way he likes them)
I watch him in secret gratitude.
The cocoon has within it a facile Butterfly.
Within a Quarantine, we witness beautiful little movements of living:
the gift of another day.

Inside Our Time: Panicking by Lisa Rosenbaum

People are in such a state right now.  Went to Gelson’s this morning and the place was mad.  Not a piece of chicken to be found. No TP either. Or cereal.  A fancy Palisades woman in a mask with her basket piled with peanut butter and cans nearly plowed into me. It was as crowded as the day before Thanksgiving but with a decided air of panic everywhere. 

I push my cart towards  the longest checkout line I’ve ever seen at this market, and I wonder how little it takes to pierce the thin skin of civilization, and allow our fears to let chaos loose in the world.
