I think about you often
But once you start dry coughing
things will quickly escalate
Let's take two weeks and isolate

When will we kiss you ask
You look so beautiful
In that medical grade mask

I could be your friend
At least until
This pandemic
comes to an end

We could do the boom boom
Over the phone or on zoom
In this relationship I'm invested
Just don't want to get physical
Until we both get tested

This is cool a touch of humor as well.

If you take the time to read a poem then take the time to let the author know you were there. Study it and form an opinion as well, even if it means going back to it more than once. That is basic critique, what Neopoet is all about.

a smile to my face this morning. One little crit. I have read and re-read this a couple of times; and every time, I wanted to say
zoom zoom or something like: in a zoom room. Maybe just me, but... Anyway, really like this one! ~ Geez.

Comments and critique are vital to this site!
Even if you just say: I liked this story or your spelling
of a word is wrong, take the time to write a line or two
and comment. Your fellow poets will thank you!

I agree that this is one of your best, Paul. We all have Covid on our minds. I hope your poem is not true, that nobody you love has been affected.
Enjoyed and take care of yourself and family.
