Poems of the Week

“Kyoto—A team of scientists at a university in western Japan has developed masks that glow
when exposed to ultraviolet light if they contain traces of the coronavirus,
using antibodies extracted from ostrich eggs.”

The eggs of these ostriches
Come at a cost which is
Worth it. The virus
Itself is admirous:
It glows! See the photo,
From beaming Kyoto.
