Corona Virus AKA Covid 19

The news told of a distant menace headed our way, 
that might overwhelm our world, 
like the Spanish flu a century ago 
or the plagues of the Middle Ages. 
They said it was implacable, sure to wreak havoc soon. 

It was like a monstrous hurricane far in the distance, 
threatening everything in its path. 
It was a virus called Corona, a crown of thorns.

They say that, like a zombie, it i...

I see why love is red.

I can’t tell you.

But last night, you entered my chest

for play, some kind of game, like ‘Operation’

staggered by a blow

six hundred million times more

fierce than the first time


man delivered a sun

to bloom and scorch upon her loam

untold shadows


no fire this time in shattering waves

though now, as then, so many souls

vanished from this tangent


and the swallowed star,

made on earth, extracts the same

'Devastation' (with recent events in Japan in mind).
