take a number

i take a number
and sit.
there are rows of chairs,
nearly
all filled.
people are holding purses
and wallets.
papers.
looking up, then back
down to their laps
where
they write things down,
stare into
their phones.
the white plate of hours
hardly moves
above the counter.
the hands seem stuck.
so do i.
