Aliens Among Us
They are not viewed through human eyes.
Wide of jaw, long of tail they move
like fogwisps in the failing light.
Existences unconfirmed by sight
for those told not to see.
A heritage of blindness.
Ears dulled to sounds of feet
so unlike the human form.
They merge/emerge through indifferent crowds,
cold blood against the warm.
Human minds not taught existence
touch on suspicions
in the dark. Late night,
two moons have risen,
tall shadowed forms seem to dart
like weightless leaves in winterstorm
giving credence to whispered reports
that Others walk among us.
Natives claiming homeworld rights
to this ball of clay beneath and above,
the suns that give us life.
Some shall die.
Mere edicts cannot alter realities
though politicians try
to legislate what should be.
But I have seen through my eyes
that there are Others.
That we are few among the great
who roam the world, side by side,
Hand to talon,
It's not too late.[ end ]
