In the Beginning. A poem by Matt Hohner

The husband of an ac-
quaintance works for the
National Security Agency.
He came home from work
one day in October 2019
with bags full of vitamin
supplements, Airborne,
etc., and promptly put
their whole family on a
daily regimen to boost
their immune systems.

He’d never done any-
thing like that before.

He didn’t explain why.
