One of the main experiences of this pandemic has been uncertainty, and this feeling is reflected by this poem by Jessica Winter which is full of questions. Shaped like a droplet of liquid, the form of the poem reminds us that our set of questions is just one drop in an ocean of doubt and uncertainty.
