it has become
to differentiate
the mimics
from the actual
human beings

gray people
taking detailed notes
copying emotion
bland facsimiles
background static
in skin suits
circles of trust

their muscles
contort beneath
plastic flesh
a cold gleam of
malicious intent
blurred visages
when witnessed from
the corners of
disbelieving eyes

i can no longer
see the difference
between these
insidious mimics
and the last vestiges
of humans being
