WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT THE OTHERS

They’re not like us They don’t like us They don’t live like us They don’t even like each other They don’t know how to live with each other They tear at each other They tear things apart They turn away so we can’t see what they’re tearing up They pull up their hoods so we can’t see their faces They put on gloves so we don’t see what’s in their hands They take what’s in our hands They take what we have They take everything they look at When they look they look away They don’t want to look They don’t look at us They don’t look like us They don’t like us They’re not like us.
