18 March, Colombo, Sri Lanka

Day 5 of social distancing – by Megan Dhakshini

From inside
 
Time
moves across this wall
in shadows
in a parade of ants
in stains shaped like dying animals
in twenty seven charcoal fingerprints
in peeling patches of age
creating maps of no place I've been. 
 
Tomorrow 
we will observe ceilings.
