Vestige

The room was full of empty people
filled with other people’s business
and gossip
and scandal
and bitterness
drip, drip, drip

Over time
they had become
stunted

She tried to be invisible
but she felt detached
like an inflamed appendix
to be discarded (untouched)
into a yellow and black box marked
DANGER!!
