A Poet in the Pandemic

Luckily I'm mostly an online poet. Social distancing is not required on social media. All the usual poetry groups and communities are still operating. Currently I'm mostly at  Poets and Storytellers United , for the very good reason that I'm officially its Coordinator these days – albeit with a wonderful, smooth-running, no-fuss team who don't need a lot of coordinating.
