The old Chinese couple sit in straightback chairs.
The old wife looks down at her hands.
The old husband turns his head to look at her.
He doesn’t move but a plastic tube threaded into his nostril trembles.
The wife inclines her head slightly, rises, and shuffles from the room.
She returns and gives a cup of tea to her husband.
He speaks again.
She rises, leaves and returns with the teapot.
The old man blinks.
The old woman looks in the distance.
They wait in silence.
