Call It Denial

He polishes chrome
while she shuffles Tarot

Luck temporarily
suspended by edicts

Life in limbo highlights
the chasm – incommunicado

They maintain distance
choking on tension

Define this as home…

  1. Oh my gosh, this is good. Certainly touches on the discovery that may be happening in many homes during the pandemic. Love the theme of distance here and your obvious fun in playing with words to fit. Nicely crafted!
