Greeting Passing Comets

If alone

A creature moves

By itself

For itself

Needing not to speak

Or communicate

With nonexistent hoards

.

If a human sat on his own planet

Unbeknownst to our world

And made his living

With no one

Would his mouth open in sounds

To greet the passing comets?

.

No longer alone

With another

No longer just by itself

No longer just for itself

Needing possible speech

Or communication

With another being

.

On the planet now, two humans

Unbeknownst to our world

Make their living

Together

Would they be able to make sounds or signs?

To greet the passing comets?
