I Failed in the Break-Out Room on Zoom Today
coronavirus diary XI 4/9/2020

Come on Zoom, take me away!
Pull me to a land of connection
where people make bread with
perfection and lovingly share
their secrets of a good bake.
Come on Zoom, connect me with others
who are reading the book I had set aside
and now can read and discuss
with pride, keeping up with a schedule.

But, oh…the embarrassment: I let it slide.
Am now a good 100 pages behind.
Zut alors! I won’t show my face on Zoom
for this book group anymore.
Best to stick to other’s speeches.
Be audience member for a he/she/they
that teaches. Just a passive patch on the Zoom
quilt screen; one of many faces
in a living room scene.
I’ll mute my mic
and listen passively.
I’ll be amused “by remote”;
ie. Remotely
