the waiting room

the sign above the door 
waiting room
the room is ordinary 
dimly lit
like many rooms
many people with white hair
sit around reading 
old magazines
with faded pictures
of past glories
a young woman in a white dress
and white shoes
walks in and takes one away
into a small cell
how do you feel
get undressed
stick out your tongue
stick out your arm
piss in a jar
bend over 
get weighted 
get dressed
go back into 
the waiting room

until we call.
