We watched a documentary 
about how nature thrived during
this year humans retreated

all it took was us staying inside
our homes a bit longer
than we usually do

now I’m worried a year from now
we’ll see nature retreat once
again recoiling at the sight

of us killing ourselves
and all the things we couldn’t
wait to get back to doing
