SeptPoWriMo 1

Today for all intents and purposes
Felt like it might be the first day of school
The library full of people looking
For places to sit and work all day long
At the same time so many of the jokes
Awkward enough to speak beneath our masks
Related to how we have no idea
How it could already be September
Since March still seems to be hanging around
The sense of panic and dread replacements
For earlier sense of panic and dread
We have all but forgotten as the days
Become shorter and the spooky season
Begins in earnest now it lasts all year
