Poems in a Pandemic: Corona With A Twist

CORONA WITH A TWIST
Punta de Mita, March 2020
by Ed Walker

Last night we watched stars
gaze over cheering crowds
before the curtain fell

and now I stare at a Mexican sunrise
bobbing on the Pacific
a surfboard between my thighs
the sun peeking out over the Sierras

a sea turtle surfacing looks up at me
or the sun too and it’s so fine
paddling for a wave forgetting
all the beers of yesterday
