Unmasked / Poem by Luz María López

 
Poem by Luz María López
 
 
Unmasked
 
Orbit through the eyes of the dispossessed walking
around in pandemic stream, defiant of death as an
inscription upon birth!
 
Surreal episodes of countless masks made of debris,
similar in shape to the blue ones, but like a joke to many
uncaring government leaders looking at them under
their blue (even fashionable) security filter over
their noses and mouths.
 
Fence by yourself as always!
Die by yourself as always!
When you are gone, we will tally your bodies instead
for statistics do count!
