Sitting by the waiting line
while criminals are blindfolded
so as not to identify
who we are.
People are getting impatient.
Watching others through reluctant                             intercourses of cups of coffee.
Chemicals pumped in to keep us docile.

Uniformed attendants call the names
through constricted throats
some stand up
and others keep on pacing.
The criminals pass before us,

heads bent and wondering.
