As events unfolded, surreal
Before our horrified eyes
I spent the day unproductive
Glued to the internet
lacking concentration
Clumsily thumbing
overlapping text conversations
between groups of friends
barely tracking responses
Able only to dab
At each incipient weep
With the same crumpled tissue

for the dverse quadrille prompt of 1/11/21: dab
