looks up

when the angmoh nurse opens the door

and closes it behind me.

She asks me to take a seat

and looks

at the papers in on her desk.

Her ponytail
of brown curls


over her shoulder,

I stare at her,

until I remember

I'm the one
who asked to see her

on my own terms,

shows my profile

and notes in a font too small

for me to read.
