our corner

our corner

note from self

search the net
no, not that one
Indra’s net instead
our corner’s ablaze
brilliant jewels abound
their facets dazzle—
one kindles another
as infectious as Covid
and maybe as lethal
but oh! such a difference
a variant that’s healthy—
a new kind of deadly
calamitous to suffering
malignant for meanness
unwinds confusion
overflows with mercy
let it spread
let it spread
let it spread
