Exam

I enter 

Cold room empty room big room

Others drift in, trepidation spilling from their breath

We take our seats and plant our feet and try to understand

Everything we’ve ever learned like words in blurry sand

I take a breath and risk a glance off the bindings of my own island

And am rewarded by your panic mirroring my own.
