Worldometers

To watch

those peaky mountains

in fearsome upward climb

day after trending day…

such impersonal numbers

until you consider

the quiet funerals

and prolific wreaths –

concentric blue rings

of arcing grief.

Will the ripples

one day collide

and splinter this facade

of unquiet peace?

  1. I used worldometers early on, but as the first wave cooled the national level became too broad-brush and I started looking for local data. Worldometers now has no more than “interest” value, to see how other countries are doing.
