Coronavirus, poetry written by Lali Tsipi Michaeli at
Pille Riin Priske



written by: Lali Tsipi Michaeli

translated by: Maayan Eitan


Chaos allows for a new social order
dreams line up quietly
in front of the unchangeable:
the sun
the moon
the stars
the spirit of mankind

She is shouting in supersonic waves
her robe is gray
green is her skin
her hair embraces her ankles
her eyes, red with tears,
reach me

I don’t walk away
expelling her
with the rings of my throat
shouting in supersonic waves
Go away! Go away!

I won’t let her
break the glass
prophesy death
I will beat
this super villain
sweep her clean
throw her
from the edge of the world
