Specimen

Stripped to your underwear,
embarrassed at your choice;
purple, lacy, flowers.
How inappropriate you are.

The doctor and his student
stare at your back and talk
behind you, about you, at you,
drawing biro down your spine.

Palms pressed tight together,
bent forward, as instructed,
you flop, you sag, you die
blood rushing to your head.

Shanta,

Mom always told us to make sure we had on clean holeless underwear when we left the house. Nothing wrong with purple and lacy. Good One.
