Do I know you? she asked. Are you important?
I'm sure I've seen your work. Or read it. Or heard you talk.
I'm sure I know you from somewhere. Were you in that movie?
Who are you? Please, you have to tell me.
Don't go away. I need to know. Who are you?
I am no one, I finally say.
No, she says. I must apologize. I thought I knew you but...I didn't.
Her face is wet with tears. You are more than a nobody. We all are....as long as someone else notices.
And I notice you.
