Populations on the Move

the aliens kept coming
documented and un-
showing up doorstepwise
some suited or even tanked
we loved the butterfly people
like small winged humans
their wings of shifting colors
their world: Illishat
or some such
don't know what astronomers
call it if they know it at all
their hospitality gift
warm pastel capsules
that soon became
a growing crystal family
not life, they said
but it's like they never left
so nice; I don't know why
THEY couldn't get papers
not like the pig people
they were nasty!
