Survival 2020. A poem by Tess Larkin

Gather me in your bosom And let me cradle safely. Seclude me in your undergrowth And let me not wither, As I meander unknown territory. The Abyss, the wilderness. The Virus that circulates. Self invited, invades. Saturates, strangulates. Like the weeds Of the underworld. It’s antenna spiky prickly Focused targeted To seduce and squeeze oxygenated lungs to extinction.
