I am the medical experiment

I am the politician’s dream 

I am the scientist’s calculation

I am the journalist’s headline

My eye is the collateral damage

My ear is the necessary wound

My blood clots are the inevitable consequence

My toes are the concomitant contribution

We are here to give you herd immunity

we are here to save your business

we are here to save the politicians’ skins

we are here to say nothing

We are the dead

we are the long covids

We are the there-but-for-grace-of-god-go-you

We are you.
