Virus not running. A poem by Michael McFarland

everything she ever got; she recovered from
childhood illnesses fled away from her
falls, breaks, bruises, twists, cuts, bites, stings;
nothing stayed; nothing ever won; nothing ~
at 23 she caught Covid; three days later died at 24


Another occasional Covid contribution … scribbled as it came .. no editing … but tears, yes … tears …
