May 15

wished

Be careful what you wish for.
Some wished to stay home.
Some wished to be homeschooled.
Others just wished to sleep in.

But is this what you wanted?
Did you want everyone to be stuck at home,
antisocial?
Did you want your little sister to be stuck using your
mom's computer for her zoom meetings?
Did you want to be down to your last 6 rolls 
of toilet paper?

What did you want?
Is this what you dreamt of, 
far before these 62 days of quarantine?

Stuck at home?
Sure you wanted to have school in your room.
But not like this.

Every time I see the clock at 11:11,
I make a wish.
