at the doctor’s office

tv-lifts-for-medical-dental-office

 

an almost symmetrical row

of imitation leather chairs

stretches a divide across

the stark waiting room

 

we all sit alone

filling out forms

looking at our phones

watching shadows

on the floor slowly

trace time’s passage

in a futile metaphor
