Self-Isolation in a Single Hostel Room

Day 1 confined to room – no going out
Day 2 do push-ups, Netflix, clean the floor
Day 3 phone friends and scrub the tiling grout
Day 4 a breakfast bag outside the door
Day 5 phone friends and tell them how I’m feeling
Day 6 lean out the window for some air
Day 7 sit-ups, Netflix, clean the ceiling
Day 8 phone friends to tell them I still care
Day 9 do star jumps till the downstairs neighbours
Day 10 complain about the bloody noise
Day 11 phone my friends about my labours
Day 12 reflect on what this world destroys
Day 13 I won’t phone my friends today
Day 14 I have nothing left to say
