Sci-fi Land

Sci-fi Land

There was a time when people could converse,

go to the beach, frolic in sand and sea,

play tennis, baseball, lacrosse, other sports,

or show up on the gym to have a swim.

I mean they might really do that in person.

Or they might sing in a large church choir

shoulder to shoulder as if they were one

voice from a single multi-head body.

Remember when restaurants were open?

Recall the days of neighborhood parties?

Those were the days before the pandemic,

before we were visiting aliens

on our own green, blue, and white planet earth

where clouds once jostled in the sky above.
