Title (Dublin Core)

The microscopic tick

Description (Dublin Core)

A mask is like a microscopic tick

We can't see it, but we can feel it, ick

As I peel

(the microscopic tick) off my face

I'm repulsed

I declare an appeal, “senit!”

the microscopic tick

has succeeded in form of fear

It's won the battle

Yet Covid is still here

As I look on the ground (all around)

the microscopic ticks

are swarming in the air

the dirty masks lay there…

Breathless, weightless, thoughtless, penniless

with an unconscious stare

microscopic tick!
