Witness Protection

Many of the people I know or knew
are in it. No, not the official version.
The government hasn’t shepherded any of them
into their new identities. They’ve done it themselves.
It’s because of something unseeable that they’ve seen
or seen done. Or something they’ve done themselves.
The people who meet them think they’re meeting them fresh.
And I suppose they are. They’re other people now.
