CLOSE QUARTER QUARANTINE
(1/23/13)


at home

at the office

out
in general
public

they sneeze
they hack
they moan
they blow

interminably

suffering
apparently
from this year's
most trendy
epidemic

I keep
my distance

for the most
part

my misanthropic
tendencies
finally
serving me
well

while driving
alone
from sickroom
to sickroom
I cough quietly
to myself

and damn
their human
frailties
