People Magazine: Heartbreaking Photo Shows Woman, 88, Talking to Her Husband Through Window of Quarantined Nursing Home

In the Life Care Center

Death came to stay

I wanted to share my Love

But they kept me away

What a way to go

Sent away to hide

Peering though a window

To The Other Side

They’re not trying to be mean

They’re just part of the machine

Where money fills the holes

In our empty souls

Now the government told me

Practice social isolation

I don’t care what they sold me

My heart isn’t their nation

So I stand outside my final home

Alone to the bone

Inside the virus is spreading

All that we’ve been dreading

In this world of unknowns

That we’re finally shedding

Or offering a welcome....

Book Cover Dormant Volcano

"Philosophy, poetry, politics, and people, Ken Jones’ Dormant Volcano covers a wide range of topics and expertly at that. Jones combines traditional devices with an experimental twist in order to tackle an intriguing array of subjects. Jones does not stick with what one would expect a poet to stick with in a collection, something I appreciate. The collection, though long, does not get stale, rather it gets more intriguing the
further you go-- some of my favorite poems of the work are in the last section—definitely a collection I could not put down."
