It is a mostly unoccupied lobby 

 

There is a girl with long hair, glasses

I recognize her,

but  don't know her name 

She is standing next to someone else I don't know 

 

The girl is standing very close 

talking to the guy about something that matters to her 

occasionally touching the edges of his jacket

but just for a few seconds 

 

The guy is listening, but not looking at her

as if he doesn't want to appear too interested or 

isn't comfortable with eye contact or

has someplace else he needs to be

 

She has most of her weight on a single foot,

the other barely touching the ground

a single toe-  half a pirouette

her head tilted to one side

 

From where I am standing

she is having an important conversation

 

But I'm halfway across the room and

she's not talking to me
