Scared to Fly

Written for:  Poets & Storytellers United
Weekly Scribblings #9 – Contagion  (posted by Magaly)
“You know what else can keep a mind from losing itself in a time of crisis? Creativity, and community, and ink-infused hope. So, dearest poets and storytellers, for our 9th Weekly Scribblings, I invite us to write new poetry or prose inspired by the idea of “Contagion”—social contagion, or metaphorical contagion, or biological contagion… Let your words spread positivity, or caution, or whatever you prefer… the choice is yours. If you go for prose, your entry should be 369 words or fewer.”

Flying through the air
headed towards fear
not knowing what lies
ahead in the case
in a virus still
with unknown questions
needing answers now
listening to Trump
but not knowing if
we can believe him
or trust no one now
leaving us alone
to figure out how
to leave home without
ever getting sick
being scared to fly.
