Virus by Ana Priscila Luz


Surrounded by despair -

we long for a kiss

but dread the air.

About this poem

"Virus" is about longing for a kiss, but dreading it at the same time: a struggle that has no ending in sight... Here in my state (Bahia), the governor is talking about some sort of hybrid lockdown at least until September!
