My Pandemic Related Poems

Since nearly, every publisher, on earth, states in their guidelines: NO PANDEMIC POEMS, PLEASE (ouch, those caps are loud), I am posting my pandemic binge on my blog and my personal pages (Twitter, FB, IG). After the new year, I plan to submit new work to publishers.

Oh, for those who frowned at my “on earth” reference, I did submit some poems to Neptune but so far I got no response.
