Dr. Melanie Jane Ausan-Tendencia’s Poem

Still unable to resist painting with words, Tendencia has written a short poem about the power of art amid the Covid19 pandemic:

“The plain, puny facemask,
to block contagions, its task.
Now the canvas of the artists’ stroke,
depicting scenarios behind the smoke.”
