Ghost town (April 7th) by Mylene
The lockdown finally happened, the streets deserted. My neighbourhood, usually buzzing with people walking, running, sitting outside in the cafe next door, now turned into a strange place. Even though it was expected, it’s apocalyptic, on another planet. Like living in an invented, artificial world, where the rules have been inverted. Even the street noise, the dogs barking, the talking, the laughter, gone. The atmosphere stale with silence. It feels as if we are chasing our shadows, alone, walking down the road.
