They ease in
and take over
a couple at a time
pictures on
the front page
as if fair warning
of what they intend
to do over time
seducing all those
who get in their way
blackmail for later
when the real push comes,
when they can move
more openly,
knives fully exposed
glittering in the bright light
their teeth dripping blood
no more need
to be shy or sly
no more need for fear
with no one left
to fear
except perhaps
for themselves
always looking
over their shoulders
at which one
of their own kind
will wield the knife
at them.
