If I could decide I would not eat pizza
again tonight, I mean I would, I will
but I wish I were eating only healthy
wonder foods prepared by a private chef
and I would not smoke drink or watch
television or obsess on sex or sports
video games or sweeping the garage.
I wish I had more self-control:
I decide – I do / my life – my rules
except then they invite me over and it
seems bad to say no – to friends
to ads, to spiritual mojo. I do
not wear a mask when I go out, I
should but it’s uncomfortable, and
how can I not hug my aunts and uncles
I may never see again?
---- Isai Morocho was a Junior at East High
in Madison, Wisconsin. He died
from the novel coronavirus.
His school district office released
a statement … heartbroken … tremendous
loss … impacts us all … take precautions
His principle said … caring friend …
ready smile … great sense of humor.
As if they filled in the name on a form
did anyone know Isai? His friends:
great smile … very funny … good student
good brother to his little sister … his writing
That could be the real Isai. When he read
his essay he made the class cry. There, that’s
somebody special. His aunt warned the public
to wear a mask as she said Isai always did.
