alien

the room is full.
people sitting at tables
laptops open
half listening
as the speaker presents
waiting for their next
snack break or meal.
how can we continue
what we have always
done when the law now
says we cannot?
how can we bend it
until it screams
without
quite
breaking?
i feel like an alien
not just foreign
but not of this world
because this seems wrong.
