I am the Floater.
I am not part of you
But I am.
I am the
Geek,
The Band Nerd,
The Jock,
The Goth,
The Popular Girl.

All at once.

And not at all.

I am inside you,
Beside you,
Yet you’ve never seen me.
And you never will.
By the time you do,
I’ll be gone.
Gone to be the
Geek,
The Band Nerd,
The Jock,
The Goth,
The Popular Girl.

All at once.

Because I am the Floater.
And I am real.
