Smell

The office restroom smells like a hospital.

It makes me nauseous

It has that silence about it too, that sombre gloominess that pervades the hospital admissions department and lobby

Sterile tiles. White.

I keep finding myself coming back to wash my hands. I stand in the silence and watch the water wash over my fingers and palms.

I don’t know why.
