Science Fiction Sunday: The Ufologist

The Ufologist

“Since human DNA no longer exists in their reality, they have to harvest it to add to their own and manipulate in order to survive.”--Bashar, as channeled by Darryl Anka.

You the watchers of elusive lights, worried
longers, hypothesizers, constant
gazers of YouTube snow-dome video flickers--
have faith: For we ourselves have come,
inevitable and swift, bearing
merciful vials of telepathy and fugue. Those
turbulent orbs that so seduce are only us:
ethereal cannibals, returned to scavenge
for what we've wasted.

Our bodies are bandages and salve, curing clay
for our future editions. We have boomeranged
back in our dying times, to pluck
our own molecules with reckless precision, as we lay
amnesiac in our swampy beds,
so fretfully alone, so eager for the harvest.

--Kristen McHenry

Be gentle with us! Yes, this is great. I'd love to hear it read.
