the definition of alien

I keep a Great Silence
     for the pejorative
     knowing intelligent life
      compounds outside
                 a human skeleton
                            scar tissue
                        & bone loss

              Many have existed before us
      & surely descendants will struggle hence
            root to tip change with the wind
                warped into future tense
      unknowing if we’ll see it

          I can say I am always
                     tempting fate
          knowing one day it’ll fuck me up

      what if this ARG is thicker
                    than we thought
           & multiverse is a pretty term
                 for thinning it out
