"Eyes" is a poem consisting of two inverted dodoitsu and concerning the facelessness constant mask-wearing gives us.
If you don’t even have access to basic necessities, "make lemonade" is probably an old & meaningless proverbial phrase.
I first wrote this poem as lyrics for a Dylan parody song. In honor of Dylan’s 79th birthday May 24th, in anticipation of his new album, & in disappointment of COVID-19 pausing Dylan’s Never Ending Tour, I present this parody here.
Many thanks to the West Florida Literary Federation for including 2 of my coronavirus-inspired pieces of writing in their collection Life in the Time of Corona.
Are we in Purgatory? Are we in Hell?
