One thousand islands

What time is it?
said the wolf

Time?
I don’t even know
what day this is.

Anything and everything that
was anything means next to
nothing and if nothing is next
to cleanliness
then we’re being cleansed.

It could be Saturday, but
there’s no way to know,
it could be midnight but as time
goes so slow it’s probably not.

There is hope on the horizon
which is nearer now as they’re
flattening the curve.

Drinking coffee
thinking of Sushi,
the original version
of
‘Sukiyaki’ plays on
the radio.
