At that corner is Isis.
Move that name to another country
and it’s the goddess of rebirth.

At the opposite corner is Ebola.
Move that name to the world
of invisible contagions
and it’s a god of decomposition.

These are to be taken
seriously, you argue,

while you stand
in line to buy
the latest tech gadget

while the two deities stand
in respective corners
circling each other in the ring

while soldiers and doctors stand
for a fight and a cure

while more people stand
to silence the noise of violence

while illnesses stand
to display safe illusions

while rebirth and decay stand
for any and all sides,
win, lose, live, or die

so next time you say
these are be taken seriously

as security for their constancy
like the latest tech gadget

I won’t argue
and stand in line with you.
