Covid Days

It takes me a whole day

to get through the day

day after day

while we wait the day of

our reckoning: vaccination

whichever day our age

brings due. Some day

my day will come.


Maybe Easter I will venture out

clad in purple while the nurse

wears white to pierce my suspended

muscle with a nail as sharp

as a lily painted on the desert.
