This our first dinner

Together after a /year/

Such exquisite taste

Still distant and cold outside

But my heart two times fuller

I breathe in deeply

Reflect at the waters edge

Outside with no mask

What a strange feeling this is

An old forgotten normal.

Day two in review,

I do not hear the alley,

Nor see the sun rise,

Transfixed by the monitor,

My only doorway outside.
