Behind These Gates
by JE Lillie
I stand on the porch just beyond their reach.
They can sense me. I can sense them.
Another step closer and they could mindswipe me.
Father has trembled the gates. They know one touch would shake them to pieces.
Daddy’s power is highly coveted. So is mine.
Since the Mutant Wars everyone can read minds. Many can mindswipe. A few like Dad have the power to tremble,turning inanimate objects into sonic killing weapons. One in a hundred million can necrotame.
I go back inside. Behind these gates I am safe from becoming their greatest weapon.
