Sympathetic Facade

A sympathetic facade

For the problems I don’t understand

In worlds unlike my own

My experiences limited

To the places I’ve gone

My external demeanor

With attention acute

As with a scientific procedure

I procure emotions

Detect shared moments

And respond in kind

With no tired hounds

Under my eyes

With time

The faces seem strange

Yet odd

With a distant and cold

Sympathetic facade
