Alien Orphan #5


 “In a real dark night of the soul it is always three o’clock in the morning.”

— F. Scott Fitzgerald







Peripheral vision & pseudo-knowledge of the future.

Different theories of what natural tolerance implied:

I realize I just needed a good deal of it before take-off.


Before activating the prayer capsule. 

Just a heartbeat idea of what it feels,

Taking some kind of solid time drug.


Reboot the core,

Launch a probe –

T minus nought!


Still I hear faint voices.

I can barely remember.

I fear for my mom unit.


I’m only dysphoria & impaired speech.

So I try & concentrate on the off cycle:

The shadows! – Why am I here again?

  1. Thanks, Marilyn! Well… though I’d prefer “cryptic”, I guess “fuzzy” is a thoroughly appropriate characterization nevertheless…!
