i woke up
heavy arms – covid vaccine.
can’t lift, yet i
sprinted to my turquoise bicycle:
rode down to the aare, early…
flung off my socks and shoes,
ran down the steps, put my feet in the river
and felt cold water flow.
i miss the sea. so i closed my eyes
and imagined heaving waves –
foaming and tingling around
my freshly shaved legs –
just as my iWatch buzzed. time to go.
train is waiting, waiting
to take me to work.
i found there with excitement,
a pleasant productive summer day,
⁃ the day a pastel dress i wore,
sprinkled with jasmine perfume.
