The After Lock-down New

Praise to the brave ones
ready to embrace the
after lock-down new.
old caterpillar habits abandoned
in dried chrysalis husks as
fresh butterfly answers emerge.
the thinking hats are pulled
from dusty shelves as experts
work out how to navigate a
pioneering route through
football and
office romances and
politics by the printer,
coffee shop gossip and
the pint in the pub
fine dining and
fish and chip suppers
wearing a face-mask and
keeping a two-metre distance.
Me? I’m not there yet.
