Anjali’s Ode to Quarantine

Here among the dying plants, beat up skateboard, 
and dirty clothes, in a purple house on the street corner.
Surrounded by nothingness. No one by my side 
to comfort me through this pandemic. Not even a cat.
Only you. Haunting my every step. Watching
and waiting until I make one wrong move. 
--Anjali
