Spring 2020

satanic logic dins,
            coronavirus consequence:
                                                vaccine administration
acknowledges retweeted outbreak reports
            planned dismissal
a living ambulance of evidence
                        guided medicine employees
providing funding for particular
focus on centered, untenable care
sealed over, archaic ownership entities
aid vehicular ideology                         arbitrary,
urinary,                        estuary.
            acidic signal snot
                                    fecal truth event
culmination of organ shutdown
            is ventilators gamble
incredible beds relate
            religiously permitted absurdity
terrible reagents           side specimens
            a sadistic cloning
test medical works nothing in politics
dying of something by far
