Among Us

They are among us.
Feeding in the same rooms
holding doors open
in places that we’ve been.
They have grown within us
silently taking over
waiting for the opportune moment
to devour us completely.
Or
the opposite is true
and they are nothing more
than the next guard
waiting for us to tire
willing to take our place
without so much
as a whisper of dissent.
And we
so uncertain
hold them accountable
for anything.
