Feels Like Science Fiction


these days, it is like living
in those science fiction stories
my husband so loved

arriving at the grocery store
to find a hand washing station
required before receiving your
sanitized shopping cart,
then being directed to the
red arrows upon the floor
one way only,
mind the two metre distancing
is maintained
as we move down the isles like robots
on a conveyor belt,
stop and go, stop and go,
at the end greeted by a plastic shield
between myself and the cashier
for both our protection

these days, society has become watchful,
our contribution in the hopes
of the betterment for all,
often an underlying theme of
science fiction novels
