Crowd by Darryl Price

You can’t get out of it, but you can feel out. They
can kick you out, but you can rejoin by refusing to leave
in the first place.You know if you’re a part of something

or not. The problem is this choice thing that asks you questions
even when you’ve already arrived at the answer’s doorstep. Oh they can
be cruel if you preen yourself differently. They take that as an

instant insult. You are not playing mirror. No one wants to see
the back of your skull. They watch you for signs. All’s well
as long as you remember when to pull your assigned puppet string.
