Drama Room

 
 
 

Drama Room

A 24/7 show with
a sense of urgency

A choreographed frantic frenzy
an odor suppressing chill
the blink, chirp, glow of LCDs
the drop, drip, dribbling of IVs

Sagging flesh, shallow breath
dazed and disoriented
sick, shot, stabbed, battered

A circus of daily death-defying events
we the audience, the main attraction,
the performers, the high wire failures
quickly cleared to bring the next act on
