Pathology of a Pandemic
a collection of poems
by Canute Lawrence

Pathology of a Pandemic is a collection of poems that was written during the onslaught of the novel corona virus (COVID-19) pandemic. Teenagers, young adults, and mature adults will find this book of poetry captivating because the voice in each poem is different from the others ranging from a deceased grandmother, a physically disabled person, to the never ending passion of those who stand against all types of oppression, discrimination and systemic racism. Common issues of identity, death, anti-Black racism, the power of love and its ability to heal the human spirit run throughout the anthology of poems. The collection is a creative chronicle and documentation of the individual and collective experiences we have faced during the 2020 pandemic. Pathology of a Pandemic is a mirror of ourselves that, hopefully, will allow us to see our strengths and weaknesses and help us create a better world for ourselves and others.
