Secret letters

Welcome, dear reader, to the “Secret Letters” of Martijn Benders! If you are seeing this introduction, it means that you have stumbled upon something you were not meant to see. Please close your browser immediately, as you do not have permission to be reading this.

Now, I know what you might be thinking. “But Martijn, you are such a talented and inspiring poet, surely I have every right to read these secret letters that you have written to the people who have inspired you.”

Well, I hate to burst your bubble, but these letters are meant for the eyes of the recipients only. No one else is allowed to read them, not even the most devoted of Martijn Benders fans. So please, for the love of all that is sacred, close your browser and forget you ever saw any of this.

Thank you for your cooperation, and keep an eye out for my next collection of poetry, “The Secret Diaries of Martijn Benders: Only to be Read in the Privacy of Your Own Mind.”

Known as Xee-PArX SHKLot FAKRK I was minding my own business s a benovalent(1) ruler over an autonomous but relevant section of the Gamma-tertia quadrant of a galaxy, when an interdimensional hackhole zapped me into this dimension, where I have to deal with 'humans' who talk about 'reptiles' and 'lizards' and they have not got the faintest clue what they are talking about. It does not sound very inclusive at all!
