It's already 36 days into the lockdown at the time of writing. Like you, I didn't know how long it would last.
When I started my #PoemPandemic feature I had the good intention of uploading to to my website each day (to supplement my primary channel on social media).
I haven't been able to keep pace here on the blog (excuses: home life of work-from-home, 2 young kids, and grading term papers during a freaking pandemic!) Which means I'm WAY behind on posting poems here.
But I wanted to let you know that I continue to #spreadtheverse each day.
I've embedded a few recent poems below. Jump over to my IG to check them out.

Poems for the Pandemic | 35 | Went a little John Donne here. I'm a sucker for a metaphysical conceit. While I won't claim to have done it very well (see what I just did there), I will pull a proverb and warn about the wonder and danger of love. Don't awaken it until it's ready. And I hope, for you, it is! #poempandemic #spreadtheverse #poetry #love #atlanticpoetrychallenge #futureself
