Residual Effect

And covid remains

in my heart,

with a mistrust of others

and a feeling of being apart.

Does social anxiety

depart with effort

or with prayer?

Oh to stop researching

problems and start

rejoicing for solutions

and newfound friends

and soft beds and warm dogs

and automated washers to

get out the stains

of the strains of my mind.
