Simultaneous Concurrent Action

Glenda Funk

Bodies
belonging to no one:
Unclaimed
Anonymous
Alien lifeless forms
Abandoned,
Left like
Refuse stacked
Awaiting burial in
Mass graves on
Hart Island—
Interred by
Hazmat suit-clad diggers.
Meanwhile…
Covid-19 infected
Nurses—
First Responders—
Tend the infirm,
Themselves gravely
Ill—infected—
Unable to procure
PPE through
Flatlined supply chains
Unlinked==broken==disconnected;
Vital skills more
Requisite than
Vital signs.
