In The Waiting Room

WP_20160718_09_34_27_Rich (2).jpgOne uplight shaped like a bowl
held out by the wall fitting
as if in offering

flickers an irregular heartbeat.
Not good for folk with epilepsy.

Consent has been signed off
for the invasion. Tablets

swallowed to ease nausea.
Sunblaze melts the skies
outside to blue with contrails.

Tops of trees move in a slight breeze.
People whisper in blue chairs,

as if in church.
Others tap quiet mobiles,

Or stare cross legged into space.
Hospital roof has small pyramids
and domes like something sacred.
