Ever since you drew your last breath,
I’ve been weeping like a melting snowman.
I held my breath as long as I could, hoping
to leave with you on your final journey.
But I kept on breathing to no avail.
Since everyone around me was dying
of Covid, I found out somebody was
selling phony proof of vaccinations.
I stopped shivering with a carrot up
my nose and made the best investment
of my life. I located my wife immediately
waiting for me at the gate thanks to
a bolt of lightning pointing the way to
the heat radiating under the shadows
of my woman ‘s bare, luminous thighs.
We resumed passionate lovemaking
as only real angels know how to do.
