By Luke Young

We live among you
Teach your children
Drive your buses and taxis
Bag your groceries
Pry plaque off your teeth
Deliver your mail
Cook your food
Bandage your wounds
Haul away trash
All while hiding 
That thing inside
With bright smiles
Toothy grins and well placed humor

He lived overseas for more than twenty years before relocating back to the United States in the autumn of 2017 with his wife and four children.
