2020

Breathe

We can’t

The virus

has masked our emotions

coughs come as bites

our chests they chew

Fear has taken root

And a knee to the neck

extinguishes life

and starts revolutions

we watch

as June locusts erupt from

earthly cocoons

Billions swarm

skies and streets covered

with their cries

crunch crunch

underfoot as we walk

to get commodities

Why go outside?

To gasp at

A Saharan dust storm

barreling towards North America

“I can’t breath”

the national motto

of 2020
