A poem about the Roswell crash




The storm will hide our lights, they
thought
As they floated through the summer night
But they had made
A horrible miscalculation

In a bolt of lightning
They fell from Heaven
Alien ass over teakettle
Silent screams bouncing off of the clouds

Their thin bodies hit the desert floor
Barely raising the dust
Their ship was embraced
By an outcropping of rock

Strange blood seeped into the sand
They called for help,
But coyotes came
And they were hungry

By the time they were found
Important pieces of the puzzle
Were already running away
Inside sated stomachs

Regurgitated
At the foot of a den
Hungry puppies
Became one with the Strangers

If you go to Roswell
In search of the Strangers
Don't look at the crash site...
Look at the coyotes

This, like the other poems I've read by you, is a vivid tale, at once rich and simplistic. So much so, I think it's easy to overlook the obvious question one never bothers to ask: If aliens crashed and scavengers ate their bodies, would it affect the earthly scavengers? Perhaps MUFON or some such organization should study the coyotes, see if there's a difference between those in and around Roswell and those from elsewhere.

Actually, the bodies are stored in a government facility in Dayton Ohio. I've had several abdutees as my clients and was with MUFON for many years as a field investigator.
Good poem.
