Nevada

By    

Nevada went insane today
not because she was fired from her job of fifteen years
due to the Pandemic and calling in sick
Not because she lost her apartment and no stimulus
check for rent or food
although she threw wild dope parties and people
fighting all night long
Not because her boyfriend contracted the virus
and blamed her for giving it to him

But because her only son who she loved more than
life itself told the police the truth
After he washed his hands and put on his mask
he confessed and witnessed Nevada beating a
woman in a wheelchair over a space in the
local grocery store line, because the woman was not
social distancing and not wearing a mask

Now she sits in her jail cell not knowing
night from day with her anxieties increasing
