    ‘FROM MY OFFICE WINDOW’

    After they ‘vanish
    east along the river’

    I sit back, ask

    what
    troubled them

    what
    not feeling welcomed is like

    what
    would It take for them to feel safe

    what
    if I become uprooted?

    ‘PROCLAIMED’

    After too many cold Covid deaths
    each one preceded by FaceTime

    with loved ones
    unable to be bedside

    fellow NewYork Presbyterian nurses
    ride the midnight MTA bus north

    hunched forward
    praying for a restful night

    before they must return in the morning
    to don once again facial coverings, green uniforms.
