Janet Abramson’s poems express moods from panic to grief to acceptance and ultimately to joy to reveal the lived experience of the pandemic.

From haiku to fully articulated dreamscapes, flashes of humor, even euphoria alternating with meditations on the tragedy of the human condition, these poems invite the reader to experience the words of Ram Das, “Be here now.”
