Ear infection

The lunar landscape of an ear infection under the microscope

Under the microscope
skin cells look like autumn leaves,
red, orange, crinkly-edged.

Virus cells masquerade as snowmen,
bacteria as tiny dots clumped together.

I walk out
mega-dollars poorer,
antibiotics and viscous ointment-pump 
in hand.
