Cold Vibrations

A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto


Cold Vibrations

 

 

strove for heard mentality

no one 

listened

 

the silence increased

bodies on ice

glistened

 

no one 

listened

the silence increased

Ha. I do love that first stanza. If we had gone down the avenue of herd immunity we would be up to 250000 deaths by now, probably more. Our vac programme is going well and I think yours is too. Maybe before long, we can enjoy a little freedom.

Hello, Jacob! :)
I got my first dose of vaccine last week. It took 2.5 hours of idling in line at a park. My mpg dropped from 28.7 to 26.4. I felt there was a parody of Apocalypse Now in the experience. When I made it to the nurse, I asked her if I could have some ketchup with my vaccine, and she totally ignored it, not even a smirk. And the vaccine itself, the needle was so small, I didn’t feel it. I didn’t feel anything til bedtime, and that was just a bit of soreness from my muscle reminding me not to stick needles into it. So, it was a big surprise the next morning, when I woke eating my wife’s braainsss. I’m thinking we might be herding ourselves into a zombie apocalypse, and I’m very upset that the lying news media isn’t focusing more on that.
