I’m grateful the local doc

Has offered me therapy times

Ahead of the crowds.

Never liked trivial chit chat

Waiting room talk with

Ever repetitive stories.

Besides the three women

At the dining room table –

We had been seated due

To admin-selection

For the duration of our

Cure –

Have grouped together

Except for Nina

Who sits opposite to me.

Her facial grimaces tell me

About her boredom

But she’s still looking

For a ‘Spa-shadow’.


I always apologize to phone

A friend or my spouse

Rising from the common


To walk to the lobby for


Besides. I’ll be daft if I let

All my life walk past in front

Of these chatter-women

Satisfying their gossiping


While they dive into their

Rich cream deserts and

Ice cream with vanilla.
