Social Security Review

Monday morning
in a haze of numbers
along the back streets
of downtown

buildings stand five stories high
all weathered to grey
and blended together

as one meets another
matching the numbers
scribbled across her wrist.

A building of federal law
in a bond of 70’s style

faded off-white walls
stains of old smoke
and people gone mad

waiting in line to wait
for their turn to spin
truths on papers of proof.

She steps onto the floor
where the line ends
and walks past
in a white washed haze

waiting to hear her name
called from those that decide
tomorrows steps.
