The Cold Hand

Walking through the dark white halls

glimpses of yellowed eyes

-i quickly look away-

Empty wheelchairs,

antiseptic desperate to hide

the sickly odour of closeted bodies

man in the phone booth coughs

i glance at her; she winces

knows too the smell of her approaching

fate

walking in slowly controlled panic,

we fidget

until

the door opens to take us away.
