Sheltered In Place


I keep my social distance

I am social distancing right now

as I write this poem

which works out fine

since I know my place

is in this space

still I don't know why

I have to remain in one place

there are so many places I'd like to be

other than this place

but I guess

everybody has to be someplace

as a kid I was told to

stay in my place

but no one ever told me

where my place was

now I shelter in place

as if I had a place

but this is hardly the place

to discuss all this

I feel like a dog

win, show or place.
