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 hisconfidants were telling him were lies.
