His Confidants

That they were members of a species not his own
alone made his new confidants a prize –

they helped him see through startlingly
unprecedented eyes extraordinary angles

he could utilize to broach new understandings
he would never have been able to approach

through any sense of fitness, truth, assumption
or surmise that he had heretofore been certain had

been wise. Now aided by these new illuminations
from the confidences of his confidants, the Universe

already had assumed a different shape and size.
He did however sometimes wonder worryingly

to himself how he could ever know if what his
confidants were telling him were lies.
