Strange happiness: COVID-19 worn visage

A strange happiness
possessed me
Behind the face mask
Bridging
Hollow silence of the pandemic night
Superimposing
a balancing act
over my sangfroid form –
The lockdown

Ah!

The mutilated silence
Hurried its steps
with no dallying time; murky
Near an open grave

These of my
gnarled nights
COVID-19 worn visage
of the dying souls

What strange happiness –
A smooth death
without bloody war
