Plague in the Time of Love, a poem by Michael Channing

Plague in the Time of Love

by Michael Channing

befriend the virus
send it selfies
tell it secrets over supper in your apartment
take it home to meet your parents
make love to the virus
let it enter you through all openings
make it need you forever
and when forever is over
and it leaves you breathless for another it just met
take solace in knowing
it will never
love anyone more
than you

I Felt the Shadow Cross My Heart
