The face that was,
is one’s identity.
It’s about one’s privacy.
‘Cos linked to one’s face,
are other faces and identities
by relation, by kinship,
especially in mental illnesses, breast cancer, Covid-19, HIV.
“Can it spread ?” “Don’t play with them, their mum works in a hospital!”
Contagion by genes, by marriage, by touch, as society defines.
Health education is an ongoing necessity; a continual challenge.
