I don’t miss

I don’t miss writing checks to pay for everything and mailing them off in stamped envelopes to pay my bills. I don’t miss getting a whole chicken to cut up and then having to find someone foolish enough to eat the giblets. I don’t miss unairconditioned houses. I don’t miss twisting the handle on a mimeograph machine to make copies. I don’t miss those aspects of my youth. But I do miss my youth.

  1. I don’t miss the frantic pace of the years before the pandemic.
    I don’t miss voting in person.
    I don’t miss crowded restaurants.
    I did miss family, friends, live music, chance meetings in stores.
    I am afraid we may be going back to where we were,
    2020 reaching out to grab us by the coattails
    and haul us back into isolation.
