Embassy

Be here,
This time,
On time.
Not a minute late.
Not a minute early.

Wait, in
The heat
Until called.
Be grateful you’re here,
Appointments come so rare.

Go now,
Concrete room.
Sign, please.
Place your belongings
Securely in the vault drop

Walk through
Now please.
Metal detector,
Brush down metal wand.
Wait until you are cued.

I am
Nervous
Watching
Dreams I latched on to
Become potential rust.

I wait,
Here in
The Embassy
Reflaming lost hopes,
Rebuilding the next step.
