FebPoWriMo 4

A day of errands approaching normal
except for the people who refuse to
somehow still wearing masks in Target is
anathema to participating
in a civilized society why
did some of us decide keeping distance
was a bad idea I for one don’t
mind never sharing space with anyone
ever again no one wants to see that
spittle of the mind dripping without pause
open to the external elements
bad ideas made worse by their speaking
wish there could be an endgame in our sights
if you are still there please turn out the lights
