Viral Lethargy


Lawnmower #1 wouldn’t start – not that
I tried making diagnoses of what might
have been wrong, that’s too clinical for a
tiny bit of lawn remaining from mornings
ride-on fly-by; it’s the wee bit where pot
plants were placed out to soak last night
in welcome rain, a dismounting difficulty 
– call it laziness, caused that omission

So mower #2 agreed to start after fuel
was added to the dry tank, #1 just sat
contentedly, impervious to threats and
won its case for a return to the garage;
maybe it explains that a lassitude I’m
unable to shake’s a similar viral strain
