They have been here all along,
not Andromedans or even Mexicans.
They conduct experiments on their spouses,
abduct their children,
drive the whole family
to Disneyworld on vacation.
They build slab houses and gated estates,
five-star restaurants and liquor stores
with drive-thru windows,
not pyramids or sidereal stelai
or interstellar bridges.
If they were telepathic they’d know
we don’t need mind readers, that each
of us is the other, they’d know
their own shadowy thoughts
