metal plates at the airport

by butterflyzrfree

so utterly boring
in lines of tension
lack of conversation
children to shut up
'I have metal plates'
put your keys and your jewelry
in this cup for the x-ray
step aside, it is ringing
'I have plates in my knees'
barefoot of lace up boots
and remove that belt buckle
bored lady fake cop with
magical wand says
do I have metal in my knees
and I say, yes.

The first few lines have the tense feel of that waiting then being hurried through with cool indifference.
Good write Smile
