“I’ll give you a covidectomy!,” said the surgeon
Let me ride inside the beast
I volunteered for this
Put my life on the line
Just to see all the other people
Normal.   Sitting in the sun.
Youth released from school or metronomic drudge
Now skateboarders, click-clicking, swishing by
Entertaining us above Trafalgar Square
Our new National Gallery of the living
Nodding policemen grasping,
Counting groups of six
Figures melting, mutating, moving, re-assembling
Crowding around the clear water fountains
Standing, sitting all around, or on the pedestal lions
Watching, listening; music, joyous words beginning
Together once more
Transported to this new land
And the new beast to tame
