Bewildering Stories

Silicate Sentience

Sherry Smith Gray

She stands in the moonlight
aglow from within
blue radiant fire
cold outer skin
angular beauty
unmoving grace
no discernable feature
no distinguishing face

She contacts her brethren
connection unseen
these creatures so arrogant
no knowledge they glean
Their touch oddly intimate
unseemly; arcane
warm hairy hands
unsuspecting a brain.
