The 2020 Tree

My heart
Assaults
My hope
In a violent
Protest
Putting
Up the tree
This year
Feels
Bizarre
As
Worries
Run rampant
While
Our nurses
Our doctors
Become sick
While healing
The sick
As the morgue
Trucks come
&Go
Nothing imaginary
About this nightmarish
Reality

By Ashley Houston

This is a poem I wrote for vss365 and vsschristmas on Twitter today. The vss365 word prompt is imaginary. The vsschristmas word prompt is tree.
