Corona – a word once synonymous
With the afterglow of a cigar illuminated
Micro-volcanically in the subterranean
Evenings after crepuscule, all aglow
With smiles, and even chatter! Do you remember?
Yet now it is more immediately associated
With ravenous abstract halos, invisible
To the human eye, bearing the
Contemporary plague upon the winds;
The virus! Such is the phenomenology
Of the everyday, inserting a surreal element
To each passing event, so at every moment
Eros and Thanatos are borne upon the winds,
Caught up in the afterglow, all consuming.
