poem about covid-19

The world became like de Chirico paintings.
The mind is so drained. 
It was such A surprise everyone looked like the scream

Suddenly we are all aliens.
We've woken up foreigners
On a planet we believed Belonged to us but today 
Has been declared off-limits. 

We can only visit, this New hushed landscape,
Through state-sanctioned
Daily walks. It's awkward. 

We are sticking together by staying apart 
March 23rd the words rang out,
That lockdown starts today.
 From now on everyone you meet,
Must be 6 feet away.
