Day 109 isolation

The plague is circling.

Circling.

Getting closer all the time.

6 steps removed. then 5. then 4.

then 2.

it is the dream that is not a dream

the dream that can not be awakened from

the viral bot

dead but animate

that slips into our breathing

that slips into our singing

that slips into our love

into our desire to keep each close

my breath is your breath

for richer

for poorer

in health

and in sickness

close
