I don't know when I can see you

I don't know when the coronavirus will end

 

My special daughter

I wish I could give you answers

I know you need certainty

So, let me say, " that's a wait and see."

  

Elgin  

Held time more slowly than Fitbit. Big, bright, present,

it ticked down seconds

in quick breaths.

Heavier

than you would have guessed,

like the butterfly

you thought was a leaf,

or your heart

after his stopped beating.
