Waiting Room
(9/9/2020)


someone’s
dying
in there

while here
I sit

in an
old
vinyl upholstered
chair

looking
at the worn
carpet

old
magazines

all of which
will survive
the patient
within

lending
a new perspective
to life

to the
importance
of things

I stare
at my shoes
for awhile

then choose
an almost
two year old
National Geographic

something
about
the last tribes
of the Amazon
