Eyes itch

When my eyes itch, I wonder if it’s the virus.
It’s just an allergy.
When I sneeze, I wonder if it’s the virus.
It’s just a cold.
When I cough, I wonder if it’s the virus.
It’s just catching my breath.
When I feel warm, I wonder if it’s the virus.
It’s just my having worn a hat for a few minutes.
When I feel sweaty, I wonder if it’s the virus.
It’s just the room being warm.
When my body aches, I wonder if it’s the virus.
It’s just me worrying myself to death, waiting for the virus’s arrival.
