Age of Castration

We live in the age of the perpetual emergency. We will never cease to be reminded to wash our hands, wear our PPE, and serve our employers from our homes when possible! Thank you darling for the right to work from home! And lecherous I must watch as essential workers bring me my food, not trusting their cleanliness and question the efficacy of their hygienic protocol. I resort to submerging my fresh fruit, my precious greens into poisonous liquids, chlorine and I stare back, the trembling backs which prevented civil society from collapsing, as they hurry away into some other home.

The sheer indignity beckons the end.
