wu flu senryu

exposed to covid
wondering if you will die
slight cough a symptom?



Note on title: a friend dubbed Covid-19 the “Wu Flu” since it originated in Wuhan, China. Linking to dVerse poets where Frank J. Tassone hosts “jisei”; Japanese death poetry.

    The sensitivity to a cough has been magnified a thousand times over. Your haiku says it all!
