in the time of the plague

March 6, 2020

in the time of the plague
the paranoidly masked
and the toilet paper panic-buyers
whisper anxiously to each other
of their greatest fears

we seek to comfort each other
with statistics and histories
and updates and conflicting sources
as the world faces extinction again
and twice on Sundays

the words are spread
information runneth over
play-by-play unfolding
of new numbers
closing in upon us

as ever, opinions mean everything
and those without opinions
are doomed to have
nothing to say
