Quiet Room-Rob Goldstein 2016

Quiet Room

“Great Hera’s Ghost!” shouts Nurse Gabriel. “You’ve been
asleep all day!”

He blows taps; the quiet room cracks

and opens.

Nurse Gabriel loosens my straps:

“How like an animal in a trap.” he says. “They
chew their legs off you know.”

Applause! Applause! From the Quiet room!

His hands can barely control themselves.
