Downsized World (04/23/2020 @ 6:42 PM)

All I see from my bedroom/office is a
a white picket fence with overgrown vines
and even more overgrown brush.

Until today,
I didn’t realize the vines have
pale-pink flowers growing out of them
I see rooftops and tall trees,
maybe maple and palms as tall as
skyscrapers and scarcely scattered about

The sky flowing beyond the rooftops
to some unknown location
It must be a secret it’s not sharing,
for I can only guess its destination

I hear distant sounds of lawnmowers going
and birds chirping happily as they flit by
The only thing that irks me more
then anything is that damn rooster
cock-a-doodle-doing every fucking morning,
and sometimes late in the evening

My dog and cat have conversations amongst themselves
The cat sings when she’s about to upchuck
and that’s her fair warning, her tale
Our dog barks at anything that crosses our doorway
even if it is on the street far away
I think she a good guard dog if this weren’t the case

My not so distant past contained so
much more mental stimulation
People, cars, buildings, and stars, and untethered locations,
but now my world has been downsized
to only what I can see and hear from my backyard

This must  be what an apocalypse feels like,
to be one of a handful of survivors to repopulate this world
but the gentle breeze reminds me
that there will be a world to return to one day,

maybe…

Stay safe and healthy…
