1722: Self-isolated

Every day I pace not one less
than ten thousand footsteps
[as documented on my Fitbit –
it syncs to my smartphone] / I
have no other duties – except
to write one poem & a charge
to entertain & pay for my four
kids [& to walk my small dog]
I feed myself & avoid excess –
but booze [& grass] shout out
alongside my bottled rattle of
my prescription timer app / I
keep myself clean / Domestic
chores tire me but now define
me – my work no longer does –
I used to be important [in love]
