Sustained Solitude in Covid-19
It’s an old body with a new jacket
That was chosen without consent.
It’s a cool absence of warm auras,
Missing three-dimensional smiles.
Non-human flora & fauna besties
Constant life-affirming presences.
Periodic staving off of surrealism
And fear that this may be the end.

The prompt today is simple, just start from the word solitude and write about it. Try to avoid using the word solitude, but try instead to describe how it feels. Does it even have a scent or a sound?
