You’ve got it alright
(whatever it is)
could be the brick dust
or those lunar rays maybe
produced by invisible cats.
Science says it would be logical
to accept you have a hulking
being in your house moving
through your air and brushing
his molecules against you personally.
True, you see him as your son,
but in reality, & as regards the biology
of your poor Okie body, you sent away
this progeny of your own flesh
for a trip to the world and in return
he came back a perfect infection unit.
In the LAN of your family,
within your walls and beneath your collected skins,
a viruscan would suggest he needs to be deleted
& you too, for now inside your cells,
the genome of you, illness is doing its work.
You’ll be fine.
