Distant Lives

Filed under: General,Litlets,Prose — crcb @ 9:48 pm

Their planet is six trillion miles away, give or take a league. The people, if one can call them that, look like land-walking starfish. They mate thirty times for each birth. They fight over who has truer dreams. They hoard useless trinkets in their caves. They come in slightly different sizes and colors, and delight in killing those of other breeds. The puny give the gross their food, and thank them for taking it. We may never understand them.
