18.

Five chairs against the walls turn an X-ray corridor
to a sparse waiting room, offering no more
to read than a single Harley Davidson magazine,
to the mild distress of our momentary companion patient,
evidently no biker.

"Here, try my Walrus,"
We discover another closeted Canadian.

Wonderful dry humour in this! Especially loved "closeted Canadian"!
