Yes there is more than one true love.
Yes but how devastating to be forced to know a second!
“Baby, shh, my regrets look like you.”
“You may know what a baby means
But I know a horse by his harness.”
I downed my juice and walked home
By that one tree that incorporates the fence.
You said, “You made me do this.”
“I wish I had so I could stop.”
I wish you would sit next to me.
You have a chance and so does everybody
To value this, that though yours if you want to
I stood up too quickly to think of now.
...we need your help. Confronting the many challenges of COVID-19—from the medical to the economic, the social to the political—demands all the moral and deliberative clarity we can muster. In Thinking in a Pandemic, we’ve organized the latest arguments from doctors and epidemiologists, philosophers and economists, legal scholars and historians, activists and citizens, as they think not just through this moment but beyond it. While much remains uncertain, Boston Review’s responsibility to public reason is sure. That’s why you’ll never see a paywall or ads. It also means that we rely on you, our readers, for support.
