Sorry for the delay in posting about this poem, as I should have posted about it a month ago. There is a good reason for this, as I am now the proud father of a one-month-old child! Thank you Prolific Press/Three Line Poetry for including my poem in your publication. This is a special issue that has taken a snapshot of our current global crisis, by putting our shared experience into as few meaningful words as possible. Check out poets from around the world reflecting on their Covid-19 experiences in the latest issue of Three Line Poetry.
The Once Familiar Street looks at what it was like for me in the early days of the pandemic. I found myself as one of the few in my city who were still going into work every day. It was a bizarre and uneasy feeling to walk down a street, that I have trekked back and forth on for years, and have it feel like an unwelcoming and unfamiliar place.
Thank you Three Line Poetry and stay safe everybody.
