Extra Terrestrial


hiding out is hard
you get mistaken for a hermit

beaches are retreating inland
water is retreating to the sea

i continue to dwindle
like an old seed potato

giving all i have
to my wandering eye


i’ve taken to sleeping
in a sleek reflective coffin

i’m trying to trick the planet
into swallowing me


reverse engineers
reinvent the wheel as a halo

sugar too was once
a rare gift

then some sold others
into slavery for it

far away they said
in a new world


everywhere more alone
in an expanding universe

dark are the matters
preoccupying the stars
