It’s Not That Simple Staying Indoors For Three Months
by Misky Braendeholm

Just now I was thinking about us and how you used to say things never last and do you remember when we’d stop after school and share an ice cream and you’d always say nothing ever lasts and your ice cream melted and dripped down your arm and I’d say, Really why not? and you said it’s just not that simple and at the time I didn’t see why not and just now as I’m sitting in my favourite chair enjoying the bright colours of spring and listening to bird song and reading about another 655 people dying from the Coronavirus and me all closeted away self-isolating, and well that’s when I suddenly realised: life just isn’t that simple.

Misky’s work is regularly published in monthly issues of Waterways Poetry in the Mainstream, Ten Penny Players, and most recently Right Hand Pointing.
