From mid-March 2020, much-published performer-poet and journalist, Nick Toczek, wrote one poem per day about living through the Covid-19 pandemic. Every evening he posted his new poem on Facebook. Because they were going up on a public platform, Nick strove to make the style and content of the poems as varied as possible.
His readership grew. Several of the poems were used in magazines and anthologies. Others were used as lyrics by songwriters. Now this book brings together the first fifteen weeks of poems. Having begun the work as a daily motivating stimulus while under lockdown, Nick has continued the process.
A second volume will follow later in the year. A timeline of events surrounding the virus is a useful accompaniment to the collection.
