Shelter in Place Day 16

unfinished Easter sonnet 

 

the poultry processing plant worker dead

every morning more green buds

the folk singer dead

snow melting the trail to mud

 

the neighbor’s mother’s mother dead

the toilet paper factory worker has a fever

the dental hygienist dead

the city council closed down the river

 

Good Friday 2020 my sister

gives out the free lunches to hundreds

spring in time of a disaster

where the body was now only blood
