Sun on Sunday

x

It’s dim outside

And raining

I hear wet tires

x

A gloomy day

I do not mind

The Addams genes at play,

I suppose,

The kind that make

A lark of dark days

x

I’m a day into

The new shot

Feels like the flu shot

And every vaccine that

I’ve had since

Childhood

The site is sore

x

I don’t mean to comment

I want to respect

The courtesies of others

That are challenged

Only in

Contagious situations,

Where they make

The issues grim

x

Like guns, I guess

We know what we know

And I might be wrong

x

But let’s not make it politics

But practicalities

There is an epidemic

I’ve lost people to it,

Which gives me added rights

To nothing

But my sadness
