the world around the artist‘s


has quietened down


businesses closed

some food shops remain

partly opened

the hum of everyday life

has faded

like the wintry skies

new state regulations

recall the curfew of 1944

somebody remarked

only artists keep comm’s


support each other like


thrive with great works

of art

any lockdown of public life

could never lock down

neither artists creativity

nor their fruitful and lively

communication –

all is in flux.

artists create in solitude

but we’ll never be overcome

or being conquered

by any curfew

however toned-down

words of so-called leaders

will gloss-over these presently

unfortunate times

with wash-over speeches

to nullify critical voices of

human beings –


your ideas.
