do aliens dream? by Denny E Marshall

DREAMING
Wouldn't that be a function of any living animal? Specifically of other lifeforms?

Who knows, we can suppose, and hope, as opposed
to history of mankind whereby
advanced civilizations, and that term is relative,
usually destroy the lesser civilization upon contact.
So if they are warlike, I would question the term "friend".

The short poems are fun because I can holistically grok them in under two minutes without wrestling with each line.

This one is nice and "clear" - there's lots to think about, but the first pass reads just like you think it does. You don't need twelve hours of background in the history of poetry to get call-backs to tropes.
