Jumped in my Jeep,
started the engine to warm it
and listen to public radio
for 5 minutes.
calling across the street:
“Mayu, come here.”
Me: Not coming. Too dangerous. Not safe. Covid 19 is ravaging Texas.
Ex-marine neighbor: I don’t like you Mayu. I’m going to get you out of this neighborhood.
Me: Who cares if anyone doesn’t like me! I fear no foe as long as Olodumare loves me.
Ex-marine neighbor: What is Aladumla?
Me: Google it.
I went indoor
slammed and locked the door
