"It's about words, and words are all I have…"



Man clearing his throat & retching

Must be the flu  I glare at him menacingly

We are both in purple   Now connected by

microbes  making a bee-line for my nose


I hold up my Americano   defensively

While he  coughs all over his hand


Were I his executioner I’d have no mercy

Not like *Madame du Barry’s   When she plead:

One more minute Mr. Executioner  he gave her 3


Man in purple’s microbes continue to hit me

Loose cough   Hand wipes away debris

Come on Mr. Executioner   drop that Guillotine



I’m an outlier. I don’t do vaccines.

(Man in purple to his mother Jan 16. 2014)
