Quarantine and Kitchen Table

A young woman with orange-brown hair and a grey dog surrounded by objects including books, paint brushes, a cup, a cookie, a coffie bag, a window, a newspaper, a plate with bread and love hearts

Past sunrise

continental breakfast greets

marmite and cheese

with begging dog

each morning

by this table


Procrastination, chocolate bar

I should have done more, I know I am able

noon and guilt arrive

with table cloth

cheese and Marmite

tea in glass

domestic conversation

me, trying to act stable


The sun is tired

and goes to rest

I go to deck the table

knife and fork, vork en mes

silver pan, soup ladle

the day is done, just like that

wake tomorrow, repeat this staple
