steps up to the mirror
to fix her hair
reapply her lipstick
powder her nose
She straightens her collar
turns to
adjust her shirt
and smooth her skirt
too wrapped up in herself to notice...

sits on the other side of the mirror
tied to a chair
watches her turn away
frantically calls her name
from his sound proof room
He throws his body back and forth
tips the chair
trying to capture her attention
all the while wondering
why she doesn't see him
