Nothing Broken

When you finally decide

To get an X-ray

You have to explain the nature of your injury three times:

At reception, to the tech, and to the doctor.

The doctor informs you nothing is broken

But the information he hands you about domestic violence

And the look in his eyes

Say otherwise.

Like so many other days

In so many other rooms

I wonder,

How did I get here?
