Where Have All the Aliens Gone?

Contact: where have all the aliens gone?

Gone: girl; era; with wind in hair.

Hair: curly tresses around delicate fingers.

Fingers: dealing heroin.

Heroine: seduced, abducted, impregnated, by shifty aliens.

Aliens’: civilizations disappeared before contact.

Contact: lost with reality.

Reality: opposite of fantasy.

Fantasy: nothing is as it seems, but it’s great.

Great: not really, except in the recesses of mind.

Mind: your guns. Erect walls, the aliens are here!

 

NOTES:  The inspiration for the poem came from a recent article that suggest that we can’t find aliens because they’ve all died off.  The form came from  Samiya Bashir’s wonderful poem called, Blackbody Curve.    (Samiya, is a Portland denizen).  Current headlines, 2016 campaign provided much of the poem’s fodder.
