While Staying Home, He Remembers

While staying home in
light of the corona-
virus, he remembers
reading Crichton’s
The Andromeda Strain
and how two people in
one, little town survived
— a baby and the town
drunk. He doesn’t recall
why the baby survived
but he recalls that the
drunk survived the virus’
attack because of all
the alcohol in his
body. As he thought
about that, he asked
his wife for another
glass of wine.
