Does it even look like you?

long hair that hangs down,
bags under your eyes that
weigh you down
a paunch, and that wasn’t
there before,
does it really look like you?

Thinking of a gym’
ending up with a gin,
at some point
we have to begin
to get things in order.

This has been the Summer
that wasn’t,
social distancing hasn’t
done anyone any favours.
