A poem about the "New Normal" talking about both the lonliness of quarantine, as well as the salvation in being alone with one's thoughts. It is about missing times before the pandemic and before mass fear, but the poem also offers a grounding reminder that the world keeps moving forward and that nothing is permanent.
