The significance of this is not clear (a poem)

Shingles. What the hell?!

I’d guess that maybe
it’s a reminder
to slow down—
except things are already
at a standstill
because that’s the process

Or maybe
I’ve just said ‘goddammit’
too often lately
and this is a lesson
in not questioning
the Divine Will

Either way
I’m staying well away
from ‘Super Track Urgent Care’
