Two Haiku

(all words White House Remarks, April 23rd, 2020)


We hit the body

just very powerful light

it kills it in one.


The disinfectant

by injection inside

almost a cleaning.


Here is another installment of abbreviated notes from key White House press conferences - this conference dated 23.4.2020 is already beyond infamous, and has been the basis of brilliant satire on Tiktok etc. - but it still stands out as the moment when something has come full circle, when all of a sudden you realise that up really is down now, and there is virtually nothing you can do about it.
