Pandemic Harmonies

Jacqueline Jules

A teenage boy sways in front of posters on his bedroom wall,
singing with the woman wearing headphones in her kitchen
while a bearded man plays a keyboard from his living room.
Voices join in little boxes on a screen, proving quarantine
cannot stop us from making music together.

I love this sparse picturesque poem. It shows us what we see onscreen in the reality of today and how music can make up for the loneliness of sheltering in place.
