Granada Theater, Emporia, Kansas



A vacuum of chatter

A detachment of friends

A tavern of echoes

A grocery store of disappointment


A temperature of fate

A fever of connection

Streets of abandon

A round globe of loneliness


A pneumonia of worry

A panic of hoarders

A calendar of cancellations

An unmeeting of minds


An isolation of kindness

A mask of heroes

A shelf of read books 

A radius of six feet


A Zoom of studies

A contagion of graves

A herald of new angels


A failure of leadership

A half-life of fear
