Another day without doors

Another day without doors
[or chats-over-pints] – wait!

No last-minute unexpected
visitors – we creep from our
shelters of friendless rooms

[as neighbours mutter ‘bout
recycling indiscretions]/ We
will not meet [no coffee this
week because no one dares
to cross locked thresholds]/

Do you recall easier weeks?
& one day there’ll be normal

We will cut back – to avoid a
second certain drag on time
as time becomes a burden –
we’ll not lose it in lockdown/
