Corona Pt. 4

Mixed Up Headlines – April 7, 2020

I just need the Comfort, the U.S.N.S. Comfort.
Here’s why.
Life is a health crisis–a full blown pandemic.
Small businesses toll hospitalizations
Even the latest setback has the virus.
Alarming rates of infection turned out to vote in Wisconsin.
Lives resigned over response to outbreak.
A ‘Liberty Rebellion’ makes an endless winter.
Normal life is a distant dream.

Inspired by a Surrealist writing class I just completed through Emory’s continuing education program, this week’s poem is a mash up of words from headlines on the New York Times website displayed April 7th. I’ve also done poems for April 8th & 9th that I’m not displaying here. Because one is depressing enough.
