The Quarantina Chronicles

The majority of Americans spent April 2020 under some sort of "Stay at Home" order. Each day, an article about the pandemic was chosen to generate first a word cloud, and then a tritina using three of the most common words in the cloud. The final sestina uses the six most common words from the previous 29 poems—Coronavirus, people, more, Trump, time, news. The result is a social and psychological record of an unprecedented month by prizewinning contemporary formalist Anna M. Evans.

Anna M. Evans gained her MFA from Bennington College and has received Fellowships from the MacDowell Artists' Colony and the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. She currently teaches at West Windsor Art Center and Rowan College at Burlington County.

The First Thing People Will Struggle to Pay Is Rent

"What to Do If You Can't Pay Rent Because Of Coronavirus Job Loss" ~ Huffington Post, 4/3/2020

The first thing people will struggle to pay is rent,
and there aren't many national protections for tenants
against the obvious threat of eviction.

Landlords have mortgages due, so eviction
is their way of securing those payments, through rent,
even if they genuinely like their tenants.

Families can refuse to leave, become squatting tenants,
use the virus as a shield against eviction.
The irony is that the virus doesn't pay rent

as it rents our lungs—a bad tenant, hard to evict.
