COVID Is the Least of My Worries

by Mohamad Kebbewar

The war turned my brain into furniture.
The currency lost twenty percent
of its value in two days.
I’m losing my health without a good cause.
I need to travel to feel sane again.
Darkness cuts my life like bison flesh.
The sky bleeds a new frontier.
