Can’t Clean That

Form: Free Verse

Because of
Covid we must wash hands
heed
basic hygiene
wear that mask in a shop, wear it
disinfect things
wash
everything so clean
no germs left
I get that
I really do but what
takes
the scent of her
out of the air, as it remains
haunting my heart
with
memories I don’t want
in me
