an introduction to statistics
unknown

child
 1
 
 
you chose the wrong affliction.
 2
your hunger cannot hurt me.
 3
it cannot travel borders or
 4
immediately kill populations like
 5
chlorine, radiation or ebola.
 6
yours is a slow disease
 7
resistant to the impatient camera,
 8
universal, common
 9
too indolent to trigger mass hysteria.
 10
child, in your next life, remember
 11
to avoid being ignored
 12
in order to be seen
 13
you must carry within your aching belly
 14
contagion.
