You Never Know That Feeling
A word in saddened whisper, and conversation brief,
you see the people coming, then they go,
bringing food, flowers; condolences for grief,
plus sympathy for such a telling blow.

You take your turn, to acknowledge what is pain,

In the padded cell of my confinement I think and feel and slide

Down a slope of reason and emotion dressed in gloves and mask

Back in our day
With this virus locking us all in
Kids all at home making a din.
Like headless chickens in a stew,
No one knows just what to do.

The old ones should take care,they say,

Smile turned downside up
Moments of despair with anguish and resent unroll,
With the touch of some cold memories and decontrol,
They crumble my heart and I feel ruffled again.

I try and held myself against them and brace.
Once again I...Read More

A Different Kind of Plague
Someday, today will be the stranger whose children's

Under the attack of a virus beast

Roaming the earth for someone to eat

to ripple the waters, so-to-speak
to leave in a blaze of glory
and affect change in doing so

The faintest rumble in the East
Droplets; barely noticeable
Did you hear that?
Must have imagined it
Anyway, not intrusive enough to spoil our most important of conversations...
