Thank you for not hugging me

My time has come. Unfortunately, it took a global pandemic to make it happen. 

Social-distancing, sheltering-in-place, self-quarantine. We now have a name for what apparently has been my lifestyle. I like being at home. I really don’t enjoy traveling. Vacations? Like fresh fish, I’m good for three days.

Hunched against morning wind,
moving as if they must, 
masked old man, masked old woman,
plodding onward past winter-scourged lawns

Did he just nudge her? All along the road,
there, and there, clumps of firm leaves,
. 
	    		buried bulbs 
			broken open
				promising green
				promising yellow
