JanPoWriMo 4

Persistent notification
presents itself regularly
every day for the past
three days exclaiming
an exposure detected
fourteen days ago
I can only surmise took
place at the place where I
received a booster shot
and waited for ten minutes
while my phone pinged
other phones in the vicinity
anonymously and I could
hear in the background
before my face other patrons
requesting take home tests
and leaving empty handed
