I get ready to leave.

And collect myself

at the door.

Something is missing.

I check myself,

Pat my pockets.

... have my wallet

... have my I.D.

... have my keys.

I still feel naked

So, I continue to survey.

... I have my phone.

... My hair is combed.

Then it hits me –

MY MASK IS GONE!!

Fully vaccinated,

There was no need

To put it on.
