Unlike Other

27 years of age,
He arrived at the
city in which he
had always lived.

Unlike before
when he was but
another face in
the crowd, they stared.

And wondered,
And pondered,
And would not
understand his
plight.

They called him disgusting
and teared at him with grimy
claws and vicious eyes, beset
by madness of the unlike other.

Engulf him into
their petty maws
and laugh.

18 years of age
she arrived at the
city in which she
had always lived.
