Ode to Bonnie Henry

If you haven’t heard of Bonnie Henry,
she is our Provincial Health Officer,
but that is not
how I will remember her.

I will remember her for a voice
she made into a blanket
of care and wisdom
that I curled up under
every so often,
and let myself
be afraid.

She must have known
that if she let us feel our fear,
our anger wouldn’t build
and burst.
