what potential did you
with your autonomic empathy,
integrity of left-deductive
with elder-right-tempered languages,
discover?

Who were you
as you stepped into morning's warm spring sun,
how were you one of "us"

So that you may see it in its true form?
Upon your heart I would wish it would land,
Yet could my silly hands possibly reach there?

Some new strain of virus
In some province far away.

Malaise in My Heart
There is a void in the hollow of my breast
where once my heart beat, undeterred
It flurries now in lethargic rhythm 
quelling emotions it has never repressed
unraveling its three-fold cord of silken threads.
