The Secrets of Sickness

I remember that day
in the car with Family
explaining, explaining, explaining

How the sickness grows
How it’s behavior is like a disobedient
child, a child who refuses to listen

Trying to explain plainly to a child
(and the adults, of course)
But does it make sense to anyone?

Don’t say too much, too vulgar
He’s young
The other one is young, but not that much

“Growing” we understand
“Misplaced” makes sense
“sickness” we see.
but the totality? The cost and effect?

He says “But why would it do that?”
Why, indeed.
