When the Immune System Refuses
to Work

Inoculations have been given,
years of trying to protect
against succumbing to infection --
but all efforts to avoid the illness
have been useless.
Years of union
with a malignant force granted
freedom for a time,
but after a period of avoidance
the sweet grasses of human
connection beckoned.
An undefended body
wandered into fields
that could prove lethal.
Not content with the bubble of safety
a venture into the living world
brought proof
the immunity was temporary
and selective.
