The News

is worried about the economy
and about the virus and
how the two are connected

about cruise ships that
sail sick people in their midst
and so, day after day

men in suits, women with lipstick
grin or frown into cameras, on
screens, talk about stocks

descending, and this goes on
and on, day after day, as we
watch quarantines, death counts

following along, witnessing
global pandemic with a smile
and a grimace
