Illness Arrives

Illness arrives with a thundering herd
Splattered mud
Heaviness and molecules.
Illness arrives in secret
Hiding, gliding on air currents
Looking for entry with conniving passwords.
Illness arrives with full broadcast
Warnings from media and needles
Weeks of seclusion and promises.
Illness arrives with delicious irony
Chicken soup and warm cups of tea
Midnight arias of insight and the fallen.
