Body Surfing Through Coronavirus


As I wait for a test or a vaccine or
the next time I have to dash to the
grocery store and back
home again

I take a deep breath and dive
dive deep and strong and stroke
hard pulling myself under
the wave 

Heading away from the
safety of the beach
eyes wide open I pray
the wave will suck me
under and drive me out behind it
to safety
