August In the Year 2020 by Mussmann
August 7th, 2020
August already of the year 2020
Time so illusive. The Covid-19 rages here in America.
We keep our distance from one another. We mask up-
wash up—and shop fast—no lingering—no idle chatter-
We march on fast—do our business and move on
move on. We have served over 5000 meals here
Since March 17th when we closed our doors to the
public. Now we are presenting movies and live
performances out side on our stage and our screen.
We are getting ready for the EARL show opening
September 5th. We go on. The crickets are present
fall sounds are in the air. The Hurricane season
begins. The election looms. Black lives matter.
The economy shakes—it heaves and reels with
each blow that the virus sends to us. We go on.
