Till We Have Faces

We covered our faces in fear,

And, our hearts opened,

We kept ourselves a grave apart,

Six feet to remind us of what we fear,

Connected now by virtual intimacy

We brave the isolation,

Our hands hidden from touch

Reach out to a host of solitary souls,

Ritually washing, cleansing the flesh,

All of us grieving the loss of fellowship,

As we wait for the day till we have faces.
