Your Virus

by Siddiq Islam

all packaged in
like loo rolls on shop shelves
awaiting the death tolls
to die out themselves
running the streets
is a wild bloodhound vicious
to whom human never
did taste more delicious

all packaged in
and all packaged out
amazon cannot
deliver me now
from thirsty impatience
from growingly dire
and blatant desire
– i am so desirous

all packaged in
and too long without you
in want of your contact
an outbreak or two
my hunger is spiking i
need a new host and
you are to my liking
– let me be your virus
