Normal Conversation: The art of talking with someone about you whilst pretending to be interested in them.
Lockdown Conversation: Being grateful to engage safely and meaningfully with another human being by any means possible on any topic of their choosing.
I’ll be two months old tomorrow
Half of that in what the telly calls ‘lockdown’
Mum and dad try to hide their sorrow
Not able to take me round town
Grandparents’ hugs; just a distant memory
I must hope they are still alright
One day there might be a remedy
Though that day isn’t yet in sight
Tight confines of mother’s womb
Now swapped for my parents’ home
This serves as a loving classroom
But how long for the chance to roam?
