anatomy of the new season
stepping from steam of bus to street
my parotid lymph nodes are exposed,
Uvula wracked, tract explodes
with propelled load of cold-shocked air.
using the diaphragm as a trampoline
genuflected seeds of viral wheeze
are aireborne, as summer bubbles
atomized invisilbized, over rooftops.
Tug, cover, my occidipal lymph nodes
toque pulled low, untuck the scarf from my
scalenus medius and wrap my nose &
external acoustic meatus before it’s froze!
