April is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.

No more is cruelty is needed, thank you!
I just got news that a 72-year-old cousin of mine, a nurse,
who has COVID-19, has had her fever come down. We are
awaiting news on her husband. Fingers crossed, as if that
does any good. She's being monitored at home. Half the
cousins are in the health profession. My uncle, an MD,
delivered me and all my siblings. Woe to any medicos who
don't give them the best care!
I'd say April Fool's Day is at least unofficially cancelled.
