"Goodnight," I say to the woman who cleans our office, before I notice how she's standing. She's leaning on her waist-high trash bin with both forearms, holding a hamburger wrapped in paper in one hand.

"Goodnight," she replies, unsmiling, her eyes dead. Without looking away, still leaning over the trash bin, she tears off a piece of the burger and pushes it into her mouth and begins to chew.
