Corona Pt. 28

100,000 Projected to Die
I can't get over this feeling--
Surpassing 400,000 US COVID deaths. 
500,000 projected by the end of February,
The month that follows the one we're in now. 
100,000 more people who might die
Who haven't yet. 
A forecasted wave of tragedy
Ready to befall us. 

I fell away from writing my weekly Corona poems. It happened around the time that Trump was diagnosed with COVID and continued through both election cycles, the presidential in November and our special election here in Georgia in January. I’ve been beating myself up a bit for falling out of the routine because I wanted to use the poems as a way to document this time period. But what’s done is done, and as much as I wish the pandemic was already over, it’s not. So I’m starting up again with the aim of posting weekly on Tuesdays.
