Word, User of Freaks

Concept, idea, norm, meme, phrase,
Script, behavior, mimesis:
The predators name themselves;
The prey practice camouflage,
And vanish into the hides
That they would appear to be.
Is that shadow me that stalks

Or did that shadow eat me?
I watch myself carefully,
Notice how my daughter mimes
First one friend then another.
The smallest stereotype
Intrigues me. They are moving
Through us, ingesting. Hide me.
