Waiting in the waiting room
the chairs stick together
the walls closing.
Tart, small voices are heard next-door,
the end of the Friday night radio-show,
witticisms and innuendo
and loud, captive laughter.
Finally, applause disintegrates that room,
other strident voices are raised.
That's when she pops her head in
'hello,' she says
and you smirk
