The Agate Alien

by Mary E. Lowd

Exterior of colorful stone
But what heart beats inside?
What tenderness might show
In those rainbow eyes?

When we find our neighbors
Hidden beyond the sky
Will we try to understand them
Or only wonder why:

They don’t behave as expected
Obeying our social constraints
So affected
