*           

torrential rain…

an errant UFO perches

on her umbrella

 

*

star wars…

fireflies fight over

a hooked moon

 

*

2 A.M.

first an UFO

then celestial vampires

 

*

truce…

an extraterrestrial butterfly kisses

Buddha’s forehead

 

*

sparks of the snake’s fangs

through the fig leaves…

the Milky Way
