2 prose poems.

The ghosts of COVID-19 are asking for new names and new faces. They come to me in the night and whisper their absurd requests in my ear. I am never frightened, but I also never oblige them; I offer them poems instead. So far not one ghost has accepted.


Life can be more important than courage, likewise, courage can be more important than life. Could it be that grace is knowing which is more important at the moment?
