Zell

She says

she’s from another place,

a secret land,

called Zell.

.

In this land,

candy witches

and sodden ravens

abound.

.

The nonsensical

becomes sensical,

in this land of hers.

.

Set, act, turn.

.

She says she’s an alien,

from another dimension.

My other friends are too,

according to her.

.

There were two originals.

She is one of those.

She says that they soon “converted” the other two’s

fleshy human souls,

into Zellian souls.

.

That’s what I learned from the rat

at least.

.

My friend and her co-original,

come to me too.

They ask if I ever,

felt different,

like I don’t

b e l o n g.

.

Doesn’t every teenager feel that way?

.

I deny it all,

it all scares the then me.

So when they congregate,

as Zellians,

I am sent away.

Set, act, turn

.

Each of them,

has a elemental power;

fire, wind, water and earth.

It’s a perfect quad,

until they lose one of their number,

to another school.

That’s when they invite me again.

.

I’m no longer scared

of what I view as their

pretend game.

But I still decline.

They view it as real

and I do not.

.

If I joined in and played along,

it would not be fair to them,

as I would be making a mockery of their world.
