the new normal?

i have been WFH (working from home)
since mid March

before things got really bad
i'd walk to Starbucks and get a latte
it helped me feel normal

in April the city literally shut down

i opted for a home brewed soothing cup of tea in the mornings

last month 
Starbucks slowly began 'opening' stores
just for order online 
pick up at the store's door

i walked, masked, every morning happily to 75th street for my fix

then the store at 81st opened for pick up
a quicker trip 
faster gratification

every morning as i walk 
i stop and snap a photo 
looking up West End Avenue

usually its around 7:30-8:00 am
the lack of traffic
lack of people
sort of scary

its every post apocalyptic novel come to life
