Talking with a mask on is a hazard of life
And I hope you had forgotten your specs, but either way
Fume starts clouding your vision
Tripping on isle five—vegetable station.
How to explain to the smiling essential worker
Why logs of yam
Droplets of taro
Rocks of potato
All piled on the floor.
With a broken phone, unfit human
Loose leaves floating, onto the ceramic
19th Commandment: THOU SHALT NOT stress out the essential worker.
