Loving the alien

Sniff of chlorophyl

whiff of ether

Look down

see fronds part and unfurl

cupping

leafy embrace

cool breeze

tugs you in

sinking the green

moss is velvet

plant yourself

lean in and

skin unfurls to mask you

the perfect kiss

inside out

you are draped

try to make sense

of distant calls

lose yourself in

the wind blowing

through her branches

are you dead

or are you

loving the alien?

***

Earth girls:

don’t care that they’re skinny

don’t care if they are fat

bothered always now

that they’re

meat

***

lost on venus

lost on mars

press up against

foreign atmosphere

do you lose yourself

if you love the alien?

***

RIP Ray Bradbury

new sneakers hitting the pavement

forever now
