dirty ducts

a central chiller thriller
has set upon this place
a sweat breaks out all over
while in some tiny space
the culprit waits…and feeds…

our daily rat race rushes
from room to room below
while in each vexed contestant
anticipations grow
of danger…as it breeds…

they tell us not to worry
that everything is fine
but something’s clearly out there
and lives are on the line
as time…and hope…recedes…

it warmed the air this morning
filled ducts with choking dust
though most could work right through it
a few could not adjust
one’s body shakes…and bleeds…

we’re still in here together
with numbers somewhat less
and what will happen next
is anybody’s guess
the plague…for now…proceeds.
