The Deadly Knot *

There were many different

knots to choose from,

much easier choices that

could have been made.

This particular one’s

structural make up so

complex to explain,

without a microbiology

degree. A twisted three stem

pseudoknot part of CoV19 RNA.

A worldwide microbe

killing machine.

SARS-CoV (the coronavirus responsible for SARS) and SARS-CoV-2 possess a unique RNA structure, a three-stemmed pseudoknot, that stimulates -1 PRF. Recent experiments identified that small molecules can be introduced as antiviral agents to bind with the pseudoknot and disrupt its stimulation of -1 PRF.Sep 15, 2020

Sun’s Awakening *

her pale silver crested lover

fades, as she wakes,

in his shadowed light,

she no longer lingers

within his cool embrace.

They have circled their

beloved child Earth

since its conception.

once more alone she

simply stretches along

the horizon, body slow to

rise, her eyes open,

casually glances across

distant mountains, bathing

them in warm beams

of light, pastel shades

of softest amber,

pale blue, her mirrored

reflection upon the clouds

as they drift before her.

Morning glory’s tightly closed

with her nightly departure,

now greet her return. slowly

unravel for her, revealing their

star-shaped blooms

indigo blue,

purple stars

centered,

ivory encircles,

her lovers moist

kiss lingers.

his marks,

reminders

of midnights passion.

Mobius Strip (acrostic)*

Like these endless circling

Unilateral discussions

Keeping us from moving forward

Each in our own corner

Wavering not one bit

Armed with our own

Repeated hurts

Match ends, you’re always the winner
