City Series – Aayush Verma in Delhi, We the Isolationists (340th Corona Diary)
Our corona diary.
[Text and photo by Aayush Verma]
I close my eyes in self isolation from corona…
And I see myself opening my heart to me
I let the sun burn my skin
And the cuckoo heal it with her voice
I let the wind kiss me
Like it kisses the trees, without asking first
I look at the dogs, treated like humans
And humans, treated like dogs
I squint my eyes harder
Till I see nothingness
Till I see love
Aren’t they the same
All this time, always within?
