Window pain - shadows of echoes of memories of songs

Window pain
Every day the same buildings watch me go past, and sometimes they turn their heads aside from weariness. "Didn't that church have a spire, a sign, some stained glass?" I think to myself, "at least, something has changed," but the moment passes, and my face too turns away.

The building's eyes remain closed. Tomorrow it will look the same as yesterday, or the same as today, and we'll pass each other unnoticed, our façades newly-painted.

I like this reminder that we're observed even as we observe. I assume I'm passed unnoticed by people commuting in the other direction or by students in the library. Unremarked, perhaps, but not unnoticed.

It's the last day of term and the undergraduates will go down soon. But the buildings will see new ones next term and the term after that and may not even register the difference.
