Philip Terry’s Covids transports us to a time when we were under strict pandemic lockdown, when take aways were encouraged, exercise was one walk or run per day outdoors, and inept politicians made worsening judgement calls with deadly consequences. In this bewildering mix of confinement and collective responsibility, Terry’s poetry documents the daily inconveniences of lockdown set against the dangerous impotence of political leadership, the very real struggles of frontline workers, and the human tragedy of the lingering spectre of Covid deaths.
