They’re on
mute
is off, they can see you
briefly
cutting in and
out
of the room
for 15 minutes
through glass
screens on camera
watching from
afar isn’t the same
as touching
together at last
breath
into the
deadly air
you expire
dying
alone
is safe and sad
to say this but
you have to
die now
without anyone
but
me.
