She was: 

Awkward at a distance

standing in the hallways of the Chemistry building

pulling on the sleeves of her green turtleneck sweater

until her hands were invisible

 

was: 

Looking impatient and cold

Because it was a colder than expected April afternoon

Winds having turned around to the North

 

 

was:

the only person in the building not carrying any books,

the only one left in the hallway when classes ended

when whoever she was waiting for did not appear

 

 

was:

staring at a diagram next to the elevator, 

reading the instructions out loud,

softly,  just above a whisper,  as if it were a prayer 

 

She was:

probably wishing she was

somewhere else.
