Catch 22 (Covid 19)

he lies on stainless steel

cold body on cold metal


he was warm once though

somebody’s son

somebody’s brother

somebody’s husband

somebody’s father


but that was before

the killers came


he did what we all do

he breathed

then the killers

took his breath away


we know the killers

cannot see them

they are hiding

in somebody’s breath

ready to kill again


to be safe we

would have to

stop breathing



we are trapped

there is no escape


breathe – you die

don’t breathe – you die


we are truly fucked
