UFOs:

Perhaps we have been visited
they came, they studied, they fled –
what would be the Latin for that
(venerunt studuerunt fugerunt)?
Or else they have yet to arrive
but will and see our catastrophe –

highlighted for me by a sign
during the time of viral spread
armed protestors with a placard
that read our body our choice
and I could not help the ironic thought –
do these gun wielding protestors
think the same applies for women who wish
to exercise choice over their bodies?

I think not –
control of the feminine
has always been at the root
of the barrel and bullet brigade.

Did their mothers, like alien beings,
unsuited to the task of life on earth
study their child's ways and then flee?

Perhaps in their saucers of life
they found it too hard to continuously give
love and comfort
to these little gun-toting boys who rose from beds
with hurt and killing thoughts
buzzing in their alien heads.

The Letterbox:

the letterbox is deep green
stands on a small circular metal post
that rises up from the concrete to meet
the centre of the bottom compartment
that, stork-like when open, waits
for the letters to drop in. The letterbox
is broken, unhinged top free
from bottom, in the wind
the top is sometimes discovered
meters away, on the ground
a deep green bird that has landed
behind and above
the nest open to the elements
the letters wet, any message
lost in the expansion of ink
and weakening of transformed tree

Conspiracy:

Let us first set the groundwork,
5G has no place in this terrain
except
the way any surreal fear festers and enters
so that it joins the vaccines that are the land
or the land's absence truthfully.

Let us then look at current plights
and it is almost enough
to
set a smile to this contrary heart
and make a prayer find its way towards lips
devoted to an atheist standpoint.

This virus has led to a rolling up of sleeves
arms thrust forward
and
veins throbbing for the needle’s kiss
once silent voices to call out
me…me…me!

Where now the protest,
the denial in science, how easy
it
is to forgo and claim a higher insight
when there is no fear of reprisal, no invisible devil
to drag the body down to hospital.
