The Monster Looks Just Like Us
Two arms, two legs, two eyes, two ears. Even up close you’d be hard pressed to tell that it was anything but human. It walks among us with impunity. It shops at the grocery store and laughs at our sitcoms. It posts pictures of its breakfast to Instagram, and leads us in our warm up stretch during the weekend run. It is a perfect simulacrum, right down to the voice, right down to the way it thinks. Looking at it, listening to it, living with it... you’d never know it was a monster. You’d never know.
