Here you are,
lining up for coffee
groggy Good morning to coworkers

Here you are,
answering the phone
professionally distant
somewhere between polite and detached.

Behind the facade I can see a scar.
nailless fingers betray
something askew.

Here you are,
one of several taking the elevator.
your eyes tracking the descending numbers, then look up
surprised to find an empty car.

You are still looking up.
Does anyone notice?
