Addiction

Standing outside of the methadone clinic, the nurses and patients smoke together. 

Huddled together, they bounce from foot to foot, trying to keep warm. 

Flowered scrubs flap in the bitter wind the same as football jerseys, sweaters and t-shirts.

Wrapped in the lingering clouds of smoke, they are equals.
