You act like nothing happened

You go about your mundane life
as if nothing ever happened
Oblivious to events that ensued,
and lives altered
You stand in line and stare at your phone
- your world revolves around it
Not knowing and not caring
what just transpired
Your life is on auto pilot;
you don’t dare disrupt a beat
Conversations only vary
with the weather that surrounds you
Wake up, people!
Don’t you realize what just took place?
I just finished reading my book
and you act like nothing happened!
