The Courtroom [EOL in Art 68]

Elizabeth Layton – THE COURTROOM – 1990

“The sign on the door to the courtroom says, KEEP OUT. The doctors, nurses, and family are not allowed in. The comatose patient on the consultation table has a funnel leading directly into her stomach. Black-robed Justices pour in nutritious foods – artificial grapes, fish, oats, peanut butter, pure H2O, 7-Up. The 25-watt light bulb symbolizes the dim illumination perfect strangers might have on the case.”
