Covid Guideline

Feeling so very squeaky clean

disinfecting myself from myself

avoidance of that which is unseen

feeling so very squeaky clean

take some hydroxychloroquine?

best to take good care of oneself

feeling so very squeaky clean

disinfecting myself from myself

I Poet

I

I came out of the canal listening

for my own voice

with my first breath

I heard it as a cry

I found darkness in my eyes

til opened to the light

I was that baby you wanted to be boy

I was made girl

all parts of me to receive touch

to open

to flower

 

II

Listening for my own voice

it navigated out of my thoughts

my mind spoke a product of time

of culture of possibilities

of bouquets gathered in spring

it was good to be who I am

 

III

Now the voice knows its own cry

weeps into the light and dark

listens with belladonna ears

what hallucinations will arise
