lockdown | discover | four | street

i’d trade my street for yours
if i thought it would mend
your,
heart

our street(s)
today
winding toward nowhere

all our
streets
yours – mine – theirs
blocked

but, the street(s)
inside
our hearts

yes, even
yours

remain open, to our world

lockdown | discover | one | joke

the bear his honey he misses
in lockdown few are there kisses
but here on the wall
a piglet so small
facing tribulations he swiftly dismisses

It’s no joke.

out in the midday sun (and locked down)

Clear as a bell and an echoing shell
Clear as a pane of glass
I realize, I can’t revise
As clear as a big blue sky
Through and through it all
Doom or Destiny, Blondie


Locked down in Accra.

Oh, is it doom or destiny?

Watch this space, especially as Ben and the WordPress Discover team are back in town.

Stay safe!
