Hiber n a t i o n

By Bowen Wang


it's been raining a lot.

it's quite curious the rain

as if it's telling us

to stay inside

These s t a y-a t-h o m e days.


which is ironic --

we're already forced

to stay

inside

at such a time.


Even stranger still

there's still people outside

passing by s i x - f e e t - a p a r t

when I look out the window

seldom, I can see a jogger.

That’s some serious dedication

During this quarantine,

this hiber n a t i o n


The blue buildings are melting

as the water runs down

Streets and pavements

As if the world is washed clean.
