FLEX YOURSELF

Before lockdown, we stood around. We moved, from memory, in inches: “Stand there. Move to the left. A hair more.” During lockdown we could not stand; we kept falling and falling. Many things that were relevant then are not now. Now we flex and rise. And when we finally stand, we will dance.
