Chicago during the pandemic

This is just fog, but this picture of downtown Chicago, taken from my crib two days ago, makes me think that the fog is a metaphor for the virus plaguing our city—and everywhere else.

The big building is the Willis Tower, formerly known as the Sears Tower.

    Looks like you’re many floors up. Must be a really nice view without the pandemic fog.

    I miss Chicago. I lived in Park Forest as a kid and loved going into the city.

    I think we are lucky that this isn’t November. A lot of gloom would not help.

    The fog comes
    on little cat feet.

    It sits looking
    over harbor and city
    on silent haunches
    and then moves on.

    Is that a large mosque in the left mid-ground?

      Yes, that’s the Black Muslim mosque on 47th Street, just a block or so away from Obama’s old house.

    The fog is a metaphor for the virus is a haunting image. How cool would it be if you could put on some special glasses and see the virus on surfaces and in the air!
