Poem… virus (english | inglés)

virus

–august 6, 2018–
london, england

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

¡dare! invade my body
as you wager… ¡go ahead!
¡celebrate! ¡believe your folly!
that you can win if i’m left dead.

what you don’t know
is what i know from experience:
after your sickening blow
you’ll weaken in futile resistance.

but even if you win
your joy will be ephemeral
and life much like the wind.
in sum, my body is your coffin
and with my funeral
yours begins.


virus will appear in a future book of poems and stories (release date | July 2020)–
