Pandemic Isolation: Vanessa Russell

In some pain
bloated as ever
not sure who I am.

One day we will all die.
We all have our time.
Really tried
but hopeful as well.

This is going to be hard.
I would never use
a soap made with lard.
Just let me be a good
mother and daughter
and hope in my next life
I try swimming with an otter.

I’ve got what it takes.
Can’t make any more mistakes.
Nothing left to say
but prepare for another day.
