Altered State

For a moment
Between the blinking of an awakening eye
And the systole and diastole of our beating hearts
It doesn’t exist
Then, like an unstoppable train
The truth emerges
Covid is here
Weaponless, we stay away
From loved ones
And everything that gave us joy.
We look back incredulously
At the giddy times
Before algorithms , curves
And rising daily tolls.
