The COVID-19 pandemic shows no sign of abating. The virus continues to mutate but is being fought by vaccines developed in record time. As the death toll from infections continues to rise, people across the globe must confront multiple challenges like new variants and misinformation. Military, political, social, and economic factors add to the uncertainty and angst of this unprecedented period.
Poetry in the Pandemic Volume II is a memoir in the form of an anthology of absorbing and insightful poems written by Larry Borowitz over the course of the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic. The author's deep and well-articulated weekly thoughts and feelings reflect a range of themes - from hope and despair, to triumph and tragedy, to setbacks and progress. At its heart, it reflects the best and worst sides of humanity - a razor-sharp evaluation of a hugely changed world.
