HEAR ME SEE

todayJanuary 16, 2022 67

Eyes
closed

Eyes
opened

Staring
Blinking
Blinking rapidly

Who’s there
Who’s that
Coming towards us
Coming towards me
I don’t understand

This is NOT normal
This is not MY normal

I CAN’T BREATHE

Hear me

I NEED to breathe

Oh

I now understand
I now see

Faces

Faces no longer recognizable

Faces
Black
Brown
White
Yellow

Our Faces
No longer even-toned

Faces
Split in half
Black and blue
Brown and white
Yellow and green

Faces
Colour Blocked
Patterned
Dotted
Striped
Flowered

In Masks

Masks to shield
Masks to protect

Masks

Can never hide
Your pain
Our concern
Their anxiety
My fear
Within the eyes
of
COVID
