what do I write in the fog of war

“Person Behind White Cover” by Pedro Figueras

what do I write in the fog of war
while saving the world
from inside my door?

a strain-the-brain treatise
with an overwrought thesis?

or a manifesto on… 
        ammo
        furlough
        joe blow
                         …sourdough
        bigotry
        inequality
        liturgy
                         …the CDC

a comedy
           a tragedy
                       a policy
                                        …DOXOLOGY

i write

a droplet of mist
easily missed
in the virtual tsunami of           
            story
            theory
            malady
                        …mp3
            hot takes
            outbreaks
            aches
                        …and mistakes

that’s what I write in the fog of war
while filling my cart in the online store
