Shortness of Breath

Shortness of Breath

written by: Kenneth Vincent Walker

 

Shortness of breath amidst
This horrendous pandemic,
Is it due to the confines of
This blasted mask, or is it
Purely psychosomatic?

My nose has been running
Along with my fears with
The death toll seared in my
Subconscious along with
The multitude of my peers.

My ears have been itching,
As conspiracy theories swirl,
Which has clouded objective
Thinking and judgment in this
My cold, and morally defiant

Post-apocalyptical world.
