Bless You: Tending the Sick at Home as an Act of Love During the Coronavirus

basket of vegetables

love is in groceries

and grimaced faces 
when milk is spilled
and hearts hit the floor
and tissues that find their way to 
waste baskets
the unwonderful
used band aids
and muddled schedules
muffled coughs
stuffed ears
the one hundred and twentieth
bless you
a little trite 
uttered in a day that’s true.
