Social (an acrostic poem)

back view of woman in blue dress sitting on the shore

So many people together in close proximity

Ordinarily that could be a fun time for the crowd

Covid changed that dynamic greatly

It forced us to find other ways to be close while being farther apart

And while it wasn’t perfect, it was sometimes enough

Letting us dip our toes into the sea of being…

Being top dog was what she had strived for all her life

Except now she wondered about what the pole position cost her

Taking time to learn a new task

Repeating it over and over

As it becomes a part of one’s being

It meant that if you get on track

Nothing will stop your locomotion
