My Quarantine Jeans


My hair is a mess, but my house is clean.

Sitting here in my quarantine jeans.

It all seemed normal just a few months ago.


Life with a newborn is about the same.

Stuck in the house, despite no rain.

Changing diapers, pumping milk, matronly duties,

But it all has a different air about it now.


The sound of the percolator rings in my ears.

Although this lockdown makes me want to drink beer.

Sitting here in my quarantine jeans.


I’m not sure how to feel.
