She Thinks she Knows Me
This stranger thinks she knows me
We met a month ago
She is not a good listener; talks nonstop
She is making some wild statements now about me
Mostly generalizations about older women
I am in the next room rolling my eyes
No one in the teacher lounge validates her suspicions
I have worked with most of the others for five years
They do know me
She drones on about me, making weird assumptions
I am amused that she has not noticed their nonresponses.
Not a listener or an observer I guess.
